Strikeforce: The Things that Matter (and Things that Donít)
I've been taking a little time to deal with some personal issues, but I did throw a piece up on the Strikeforce event this weekend for those who are interested.

There are bouts on this card that matter to the international scene. Marius Zaromskis (13-3 MMA, #9 IWMMAR) vs. Nick Diaz (20-7-0-1 MMA, 6-4 UFC) matters. Cristiane Santos (8-1 MMA) defending her title for the first time against Marloes Coenen (17-3 MMA) matters. But the way that Strikeforce is marketing the card is eerily familiar.

The fact that Herschel Walker (0-0 MMA) is being pushed by Strikeforce as a legitimate talent before he makes his debut is bothersome, and the fact that his first fight against an unknown heavyweight who may still kick his ass is on the main card of an event is something that Strikeforce shouldnít be proud of. But itís not going to bother them, for the same reason it didnít bother EliteXC to put on a less than stellar show when they showed up in Miami.
