Observations from My Couch: Strikeforce Challengers' "Kaufman Smash!"

    • Caros Fodor and Ousmane Thomas Diagne: two fighters you never heard of, and will never hear from again.
    • How can you dislike a guy named “Abongo”?  He’s like a character from an Edgar Rice Burroughs novel.
    • Mike Kyle may be a solid fighter, but he’s still the douchebag who kicked Brian Olsen in the face when he was down.  Therefore, I refuse to give Kyle any props until Olsen gets to kick him in the grill in return.
    • Cory Devela vs. Bobby Voelker was close.  So close, in fact, that Devela and Voelker are now legally married in Massachusetts, Hawaii and Vermont.
    • Roxanne Modafferi is top-notch competition, and by putting her away with a slam, Sarah Kaufman has proven herself to be the most dangerous 135-pound chick out there.  Now I’m curious to see how she’d do against Cyborg…
    • Months ago I did not know nor care about Shane del Rosario.  But credit Strikeforce for bringing this cat along right, because I sure as hell know and care now.
