Nick Diaz vs. Scott Smith. Catch weight fight at 180

Main Event: Robbie Lawler vs. Jake Shields. Catch weight fight at 182

Main card airs live on Showtime and via enhanced online PPV (cost is roughly $30, you'll get more camera angles and other extra features-I think there will be a "ref cam" as well). I won't be getting the online PPV, thought about it but since I've committed to UFC 99 next week I'm passing on this one.

The only misstep Strikeforce made in putting this card together is denying watchers Cavalcante vs. Kyle in lieu of what should be a pretty ho-hum Whitehead vs. Randleman.

Otherwise, the fireworks should be in full display. Can't wait to see Diaz vs. Smith and Arlovski vs. Rogers.

June's got a lot of big knockout-friendly cards. Baroni, Riggs, Arlovski, Rogers, Diaz, Smith, Lawler, Brown, Faber, Aldo, Swanson, Grispi, Pulver, Franklin, Silva, CroCop, Swick, Saunders, Hardy, Davis, Velasquez, Kongo, Fisher - gonna be a bloody month.

I'm feeling good about a couple of my upset picks tonight. Smith should be getting more respect against Diaz for his KO power, and although it's more risky I like Rogers as a sneaky sleeper against AA.

A stiff breeze could potentially ko Arlovski j/k
Rogers does have a decent chance

I never feel good about your picks

Anyway...the first fight is in the books. Pat Benson beats Dave Cochran with a triangle at 2:18 of the first round. This was, I believe, one of the fights not included in the picks.

Uh oh...might have a DQ or NC coming. Lopes vs. Ventigmilia has been stopped in round 1. Lopes got Ventigmilia with an illegal knee to the head of a downed opponent.

Correction, it's other way around. Lopes wins by DQ.

For good reason too. If one of the eight best fights on any card is a matchup between a 16-19 fighter and a 3-5 fighter, the card probably shouldn't even be play at all.

Sounds like Ventimiglia landed the illegal knee on Lopes in the scramble up, not the other way around.

Yeah, I either misread the update about it or Junkie changed it. Anyway, since it's a DQ that means the fight is thrown out for picks & wagers.

Yeah, but it's tough when you want so badly for Kyle to lose.

DeRousse TKOs Wade in 4:06, Kyle beat Feijao late in R2. This funny quip from Junkie: "Cavalcante just misses with a looping right as Kyle's wife or girlfriend screams my ear off from a row behind me."

If anyone is looking for a clear stream this is without doubt the best I'v had.
Starts in about half a hour.

I didnt think in a million fights (sarcasm) that Kyle would beat Feijao, and I doubt you two did either


EDIT: on a more positive note, 1-1 with 11pts

Finney subs Bumgarner in 1:55. That's it for the prelims. Time for a 60-minute coffee break. Smoke if you got 'em.

Feijao is more technical, but I saw it as a real possibility. Why wouldn't I? He hits hard. He stopped Irvin back in the day...and while Anderson made it look easy, nobody else has stopped Irvin in that fashion except for Kyle.

No need to get offended, I just dont buy it if you picked Feijao, Irvin isnt Feijao anyway, this was a huge upset.

EDIT: the ANderson stoppage was more brutal imo, and Feijao is a close image to Anderson

Not doing to good in my whole secondary league, went 2-6, last time, and now i am currently going 1-2 tonight. I hope I can pull off a good main card.

There's only been two fights that count tonight, since the Lopes/Ventimiglia fight ended in a disqualification.

EvenFlow will probably beat me in the secondary grand prix; Baumgartner vs. Finney was our only significant difference.

0-2, 0 points. -$150 so far.

I never said that I thought Kyle would win, but I did think it was a tough pick. Personal feelings about Kyle ultimately helped sway my decision. It's not the best way to make picks, but we've all done it. Sure Kyle was an underdog in this fight, but that's mainly because we haven't heard from Kyle in a while and most people assume Strikeforce is preparing Feijao to be their guy at 205.
