Observations from My Couch: Strikeforce Challengers 13 "Ultimate Amanda Nunes Done Killed Someone"

  • As judo guys go, Rhadi Ferguson didn’t show a lot of throwing.  But hey, his leglocks were great, so that’s something.
  • A fourteen-second knockout?  Dear God, please say we’ve found someone who can stand with Cris Cyborg!  Please!
  • Daniel Cormier once again demonstrated that he’s a promising up-and-comer.  However, that man should be kept far away from Strikeforce’s heavyweight tournament.  And I mean that in a “Good grief, this fight is boring” kind of way.
  • Ovince St. Preux is becoming very competent at battering and punishing opponents but not quite finishing them.
  • Thank you, Tyron Woodley and Tarec Saffiedine, for turning what should have been a stellar main event into a suckfest.  If I had wanted to watch men hugging against the cage for 15 minutes, I would’ve… gone to the park… and watched men hugging… against the cage for 15 minutes.  Or something snarky and witty.  I don’t know.
