Observations from My Couch: Strikeforce's "Rousey vs. Kaufman"

  • Sure, Bobby Green may have kicked his tail from pillar to post, but Matt Ricehouse is one game-ass mofo who doesn't know the meaning of the word "quit".  Seriously, someone needs to bring him a dictionary.  I don't think he knows the word's meaning.
  • After last night's performance, I really question if Strikeforce's matchmaker was trying to get Hiroko Yamanaka killed when she was paired up against Cris Cyborg.
  • Adlan Amagov didn't beat Keith Berry.  Referee Herb Dean did.  That was a raw deal.
  • I don't know what was more impressive - the beating that Julie Kedzie delivered, or the beating that Miesha Tate absorbed before somehow finding the sub.  I definitely want to see both ladies again.
  • I question that stoppage in the Ovince St. Preux/TJ Cook bout.  I think Cook still had more in him.
  • Chumbawumba Sayers.  I just like saying that.
  • I dig Tarec Saffiedine and have him as a top contender for the belt.  Champ Nate Marquardt is going to kill him, but at least Saffiedine is up there.
  • Strikeforce's middleweight division is so thick with top talent, Ronaldo Souza need only defeat Derek Brunson to get a crack at the belt again.  That is, of course, unless someone deems it necessary for him to face Keith Jardine.  Then Souza is doomed.
  • Ronda Rousey is to armbars what Beatrix Kiddo is to katanas, and God damn if all those limbs she's collected in the cage don't belong to her now.
