Scott Smith (13-5) knows the challenges that await him Friday night.

The UFC, EliteXC and WEC veteran will make his debut for Strikeforce against fellow slugger Terry Martin (18-5). And despite taking the fight on just a week's notice, Smith recently told TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), that he'll be ready.

"Its real risky to take a fight on short notice, especially a guy like Terry Martin," Smith said. "But about three weeks ago I was supposed to fight on that EliteXC card for the Showtime / EliteXC card. I think it was Nov. 8. I was getting prepared for that. So I just kept on training through, hoping something would come up. And this came up. So I'm ready to go."

I hope Smith gets the tko victory him just outworks martin and waits for martin to get tired in the 3rd and then finish him with the hands of steel.

''Hands of steel'' connecting with ''Jaw made of glass'' = poetry in motion

Hands of steel all the way baby!!!! I think Martin has always been overrated. (well atleast in the beginning)

Scott Smith is a badass and always puts on a good show
