Even in losing, I like The Punk even more. Classy to the end.

It does suck about the shot to the boys and the ridiculous poke in the eye. It kind of takes away some of the luster from Melendez IMO.

I wonder how much of Thompson's gameplan was based upon his ankle? He only threw like 5 front kick compared to a lot more in their first fight. I really can't wait for the rubber match. I would probably put my money on Thomson again, and chalk this loss up to his injury and what not.

That fight was fireworks.

Gilbert Melendez has now avenged both of the losses on his record.

Thompson and Ishida.

He's got an extremly impressive list of victems which includes the above names as well as Kawajiri and Clay Guida.

Alot of power he's throwin in that cross-hook combo.

Havent gotten to watch this fight yet, I was at work but I have it on my DVR. All I know about it at the moment is that Thomson lost, that makes me sad. Im ready for the rubber match now.

Hell of a brawl this one was. I enjoyed this strikeforce card better than ufc 107 to be honest. UFC better start paying their fighters more. Ufc needs to simplly get rid of about 20-30 of the scrubs so they can keep the good ones more interested. Showtime is bringing it.

I enjoyed this card more than most of the more recent UFC cards. Throw in a stupid decision in Shogun vs Rua and the hangover from that, and I think SF has outperformed UFC in 2009 just by pure quality.

Oh i don't know why i should had posted it!

But if you wanna know it my pleasure For me it definitely was Machida vs. Shogun. Technically on a whole another level! The fight was way more intelligent more like a chess game.

The thing Melendez and Thompson did, i don't wanna call it a brawl but it's very close to it. They just through punches and were hopeing that they connect.
