Good fight by Noons. Noons-v-Diaz or Noons-v-Melendez would be fine with me.

And all I can say about Gurgel is . I'm not sure he even wants to win anymore, he's just happy to get knocked around.

Haha it's been the story with him for the past few years now... it's ridiculous, but I can see where Frank Shamrock said "He's tired of armbarring people," but at least attempt to play to your strengths...

KJ Noons...... wow.



I really want to see him fight Melendez.



Noons loses imo. Gilberts good enough standing to get Noons comfortable and get the td. Noons will get schooled on the ground by Gil.

That's funny how they played it up that Jack Shields was offered a fight with Jacare twice but turned it down.

John Schorle is obviously the worst referee in mixed martial arts.

Full mount, no matter what, deserves no standing up.



stand up isnt the issue... not letting him restart in the position is... ******* bullshit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The standup was done because of inactivity, then they assessed the cut. That is some horrible refereeing.

The two Schorle errors committed tonight combined with the way the Noons/Gurgel fight ended makes me believe Texas has easily the worst refs in American MMA.

Kennedy should be using some leg kicks.

If I was Kennedy's corner I would have him pushing Jacare up against the cage and pressuring Jacare.

I agreed.

The amount of work Jacare put into clinchwork and takedowns with Villasenor was the reason he gassed.

Strikeforce never gets the winner they obviously want.

Henderson, Emelianenko, Mousasi, Lawal, Kennedy, etc. - it never works out for them.

As always a pretty average show from strikeforce, I can complain as I paid $35AU to watch in our PPV channel. Two title fight where good.. I think its funny as how they always bring up the UFC, Its so silly. They should go on as if UFC dont even exist! But oh well.

KJ is lucky he missed with knee (Head anyways) didnt need that to taint his win. The knockdown after the bell looked nasty!

LOL at Lashley, Plain and simple, He isnt that good... No power in his strikes at all. I thought he looked super fast at the start and though he was going to finish, NOPE... Got hit a few times and give up mentally. He can not take a beating... Good job other guy whatever his name was! (wink wink Lashley)

King Mo got too relaxed with his body shots and could of won that fight, But good entertaining fight!

Well.. interesting to see Lawal and Lashley exposed

Havent seen the Noons stoppage yet, but sounds like some awful reffing to me.

Interested to see who wins the strikeforce mw tournament to challenge Jacare. I think Kennedy warrants a spot in it after that fight.

I can post some sengoku spoilers cuz I have HDnet. Right now there just doing bw tourny fights.

It was indecisive refereeing. The knockdown at the end of the round was in no way intentional and was in the flow of the fight. The knee that he landed at the end, hit Gurgel's elbow, so it was legal. KJ was trying to be a sportsman after he knocked him down with the combo in the second and get the ref to intervene, but was then forced to continue and pounded Gurgel out.

How will Cormier's submission via strikes win be counted in the game?

will go down as a submission win, submission via strikes so that knocks me down to 49 pts.
