First of all, props to Strikeforce for once again putting on a top notch show and treating their fighters very well. Also, the CSAC seems to have streamlined their operation significantly, everything ran very smoothly at this show. I went to corner for Mike Cook, who unfortunately lost. Dissapointing, but to Mike for having huge balls and putting up one hell of a fight. He wasn't supposed to win, he was hand picked because the promoter didn't think he could win, and he did really well. He's only been training mma for like 6 months, and he's improving rapidly. He's already gotten an offer from another org and hopefully will get more strikeforce fights. Heres the Sherdog pbp on his fight: A couple random things about the show... As mentioned in the other thread Gina Carano/Elaina Maxwell was a badass fight. Gina Carano is ridiculously hot and a very nasty striker. Von Flue blocked the kick then his arm/gloved connected with his head causing the cut. BAD BAD cut. Von Flue very very upset. Ludwig/Fryklund was an entertaining if hopelessly one-sided fight. Bang knocked Fryklund all over the cage with all manner of strikes. Fryklund stayed in the pocket and threw though. Finally dropped him with a punch/head kick/knee combo iirc. I know it was a knee at the end. Saw Fryklund in the elevator at the hotel and he told me he had to get 9 stitches to sew up the webbing between two of his fingers. Said sometimes he doesn't use wraps Warpath/Buentello - Buentello is too fast for Warpath. Warpath is a super nice dude though, we shared a locker room with him and I talked to him throughout the night. Crackin jokes before and after his fight. I think he's just really stoked he gets to fight for a living. And finally, to Nam Phan. He took this fight on short notice, against a much bigger dude, and despite losing really showed how good he is. I had heard he was good but never thought he would do as well as he did against Thomson.
