Observations From My Couch: Strikeforce Challengers "Cornrows of Doom"

  • Either Yancy Medeiros is a stud, or Raul Castillo really, really, really needs to learn more than just jiu-jitsu. I'm thinking it's the latter.
  • Tarec Saffiedine is one badass Belgian. And given the reputation of the Belgian peoples, he could very well be the only badass Belgian.
  • Luke Rockhold smoked Paul Bradley like a cheap, poorly-rolled joint. That wasn't even competitive.
  • Karl Amoussou is an exciting and skilled striker, but apparently the counter to superior striking is eye-gouging. He needs to learn to defend against that.
  • Sarah Kaufman may be the Strikeforce 135-pound chick champ, but that belt means little until she faces Tara LaRosa.
