Disgusting article. And absolutly biased.
Looks like Cagepotato is looking for any reason to take shots here. The first funny thing is that they seem unable to give Griggs his due for a well executed game plan.
That was a rag article clear and cut, when you call a fighter "some guy with sideburns" instead of an up and comer with a solid record to date which is what Chad Griggs is..
Chad Griggs likes to stop his fights. He's 9-1 with 9 wins coming by way of stoppage he's never sent a fight to a decision but had anyone relied on Cagepotato for that type of info they'd simply know that Chad has sideburns.
Also, rags like ths and critics have said things like Coker and Strikeforce "didn't expect Mo to lose to Feijao".... thats one of the funniest things I've been reading on websites.. like they tryed to put King Mo against a can and it backfired. It's Rafael Feijao, Look at his last fight against Antwain Britt who is a powerful wrestler with heavy hands... very similar to King Mo but bigger.... Feijao hammerd his head in. That fight was no given. And Feijao has a deep tool box in the cage and comes from an outstanding camp.
Statements like this...
Allegedly, Strikeforce will try to make good on its promise to hold some kind of No. 1-contender tournament to find a first challenger for Souza.
this is why parts of that article made me chuckle...sounds like the reporter was spitting instead of typing... how much more biased could you sound when reporting that there will in fact be a MW tourney for a #1 contender slot?
And a let's be honest a 1 night MW tournament to determine a #1 contender for the MW crown is an excellent way to sort through the rankings and create a title shot that makes sense.
And WTH is this??
The broadcast team also clearly had orders to casually allege that Shields had turned down multiple opportunities to fight Jacare.
I wanna know this guys source..
