Veteran fighter and longtime friend of MMA Journalist Andrew Montanez is living the dream out on the West Coast, and you can witness some of that here.

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.
