Post Fight Brawl at Strikeforce Nashville Video

I didn't catch this live but definitely a black eye for MMA. Most of the blame is falling on Jason Miller at this point for being in the cage and aggressively requesting a rematch with Jake Shields. Of course, somehow the Diaz boys found a way to be in the middle of the action. Probably a lot more to come on this.

Strikeforce Challengers VI Reaction

Since I finally signed up for satellite TV, I was able to get Showtime free for three months. I didn't think I would watch it that much, but I did catch the last Strikeforce event, Strikeforce Challengers VI.

The production of the event was about what I have come to expect from Showtime. They do a good job introducing the fighters, this can make the fights interesting to watch especially if you are not familiar with the fighters. My only major complaint is with the flashing lights, they made it difficult to look at the TV sometimes.

One nice surprise was the quality of fights early on the broadcast. I thought the first three fights were very entertaining.

OK, now the bad news. The main event was not fun to watch. The fight between Sarah Kaufman and Takayo Hashi was for the womens welterweight title and I was board 3 minutes into the fight. I am going to suggest that if the fighters had been more evenly matched it would have been a better fight. Still, this was anticlimactic to say the least.

Overall, I have to say that I wouldn't order Showtime to get these fights but I will watch them as long as I get Showtime for free.
