I'll give Strikeforce credit, they are making a serious run at the UFC. I don't think they can really afford it but if they keep signing big names they can put on some decent cards with regularity.

Wow, Manhoef will smash Lawler so bad it won't be funny. That will be a brutal KO.

And IMO Mousasi would keep it standing this time for entertainment value and still wreck Manhoef.
Shields will get his block knocked off .. In dont think Shield's take downs are good enough to take Melvin down the first try and submit him..

As for Mousasi your crazy M wont try and stand and bang with Melvin hes smarter then that.. He didnt want known of his stand up nore would he want it again..

Anything can happen I think in all Melvin has the best chance against Shields but it can easily go the other way and Melvin loses to them both .. But Im going with his punching chance.

Amazing signing for SF!

Melvin vs Cung Le or vs Lawler would be sweet.

SF's roster is getting better and better.

Please, please, please... I want to see this.

Would love to see "world class" striker Cung Le get in the cage with a real world class striker.

Manhoef would make Cung turn to acting permanently.

*SPINNING SIDE ROUNDHOUSE ELEVATOR HEEL KICK!!!!*

*miss*

*right hook*


Manhoef is a standup beast. I wish Guillard was 185-205lbs so we could see a pretty ridiculous boxing match in the cage.
