Observations from My Couch: The Great M-1 Global/Bellator/Strikeforce Saturday Extravaganza

  • Yeah, so Team USA went over to Moscow and got killed by Team Russia.  But you have to wonder if the fact that they were flown in just the day before played a role in anyone’s performance. 
  • Brent Weedman didn’t so much as win his fight against Dan Hornbuckle as Hornbuckle lost it by keeping it too close. 
  • Just one cool judo technique from Rick Hawn?  As they say in Brazil, “I am disappoint.”
  • Nice Jedi Mind Trick by Jay Hieron.  I guess that means that Josh Rosenthal is weak-willed, though.
  • Chris Lozano really had nothing for Lyman Good, and Good wisely played it cool and took few risks.  Expect more fireworks when he takes on Hawn in the next round.
  • It was pretty sweet watching Jorge Masvidal completely outclass and pick apart Billy Evangelista.  Yup, pretty sweet.
  • Once – just once – I’d like to see Melvin Manhoef win on Showtime.  Strikeforce, please feed the man a can.
  • Marloes Coenen vs. Liz Carmouche was like watching Frank Shamrock vs. Jeremy Horn (UFC 17) all over again.  Boy, that was an ass-kicking.
  • Dan Henderson is the man.  That is all.
