Some good fights. Outside of Strikeforce, my favourite is probably DJ Linderman v Tim Chemelli. Bellator vet Linderman who lost a split decision to Hale in the semi's against the unbeaten chemelli, who is 8-0 and has finished every fight in the first round. It may be Chemelli's coming out party.

Kalib Starnes v John Salter is an interesting fight. Starned is 4-3 since the Quarry fight, and Salter won his only post-UFC fight. I can see Starnes taking a decision.

Pete Sell v Elijah Harshbarger should be a decent scrap. Its Sell's first post-UFC fight after the Brown destruction, and Harshbarger is a good prospect.

Emmanuel Newton v Steve Bosse should be a decent fight. Bosse used to be a pro hockey player and has wins over Marvin Eastman and Wes Sims, whilst Newton is coming off a submission win over UFC vet Rodney Wallace.

There's also a whole bunch of unbeaten prospects - Bruno Santos 9-0, Tim Chemelli 8-0, Jason Sampson 6-0, Tim Wadsworth 5-0, Derek Medler 5-0, Robert Drysdale 2-0. I'm most interested to see Drysdale back in action and i'm expecting another submission win. Also interested to see Santos and Chemelli.



Events Attended: UFC 120, CWFC 45, CWFC 52

That was alot of fights going on in a two day span. I thought Seth Petrazelli was going to fight. I guess he dropped out.
