We're underway!
Main card airs live on Showtime on the East Coast, but airs on tape delay at 10 PM PT on the West Coast. Showtime is offering an online stream with extra features but it'll cost you $25.

Tonight's card (fight order may still change):
Prelims:
Shingo Kohara beat Jeremy Tavares by KO at 4 seconds of round 2.
James Terry beat Zak Bucia by unanimous decision, 3 30-27s.
Raul Castillo beat Brandon Michaels by submission (rear naked choke) at 1:45 of round 1.*
Eric Lawson beat Waylon Kennell by TKO (strikes) at 4:54 of round 1.
Luke Rockhold beat Buck Meredith by submission (head & arm choke) at 4:07 of round 1.

TV fights:
Brett Rogers beat Ron Humphrey by TKO (strikes) at 1:38 of round 2. Rogers was penalized 1 point in round 1 for grabbing/holding Humphrey's hair on roughly 3 separate occasions and warned again in round 2 for it.
Cristiane Santos beat Hitomi Akano by TKO (strikes) at 35 seconds of round 3.**
Scott Smith beat Benji Radach by KO at 3:24 of round 3.
Gilbert Melendez beat Rodrigo Damm by KO at 2:02 of round 2 to become the interim Strikeforce Lightweight Champion. He'll face SF LW Champion Josh Thomson in an immediate title unification fight upon his return from injury.
Main Event: Nick Diaz beat Frank Shamrock by TKO (strikes) at 3:57 of round 2.***

*-Michaels missed weight, so fight is catch weight at 187.5 pounds. Michaels is fined 20% of his fight purse.
**-Santos missed weight, coming in initially at 152 then later at 150, fight was to be at 145. Fight is still on after 11th-hour negotiations with Akano's camp. Akano gets a win bonus even if she loses and 2 guaranteed fights in the future, among other concessions. Santos is fined 20% of her fight purse-half of that goes to the CSAC, the rest goes to Akano. An on-air explanation of what happened with Santos missing weight is also expected.
***-Catch weight fight at 179.

Announced attendance before main event: 15,211.

I think so as we went with 7 of the 10 fights. Shamrock-Diaz is the Hot Bout.

Almost forgot, for those not able to watch or just want to pass time before the event or during breaks, a replay of Vaseline-Gate...I mean, UFC 94: St. Pierre vs. Penn 2 airs tonight on Spike.

We're underway! Kohara-Tavares is up first, they've just finished the first round. Crowd's still finding their way in, might seem light until the main card with the Royce Gracie & Josh Thomson signings coming up during prelims.

And it's over. Kohara by KO at 4 seconds of round 2. Tavares shoots...Tavares, meet Kohara's knee. BOOM! Tavares OUT for several moments but leaves under his own power.

Bucia-Terry up now. The referee is "Big" John McCarthy.

And since it likely won't be seen on TV...

Kohara's KO of Tavares.

As for Bucia-Terry, 3 30-27s...Terry.

Tito Ortiz is at ringside now. Arena now appears to be half-full.

Castillo subs Michaels in 1:45. RNC.

Let's go Rockhold, submit Buck!!!

Edit: oops that fight isn't next...let's go Lawson submit your dude!!! I just realized I only have one fight going the distance (main event)..although I kind of wish I picked Cyborg to win by decision now..

1-0 with 5 points.....sounds like it was a pretty nice sweep that let him finish the fight

Lawson TKOs Kennell in 4:54. Last prelim starting now then we'll have anywhere from a 25-45 minute break until the first TV fight. Arena 65% full, most empty seats are in the upper level.

If this Strikeforce event was the best 8 fights were going to be picked, how come there were only 7 fights to select?

It may not be deer season, but Luke definately just put away a Buck..somebody call the Park Rangers!!! (Pure cheesiness!! I am bored at work..sorry)

Becauise it was changed form best 8 Fights Only to "Best Fights Only" after the Thomson injury.

That's it for the prelims, first main fight should start in about 40 minutes, so take a break until then. Smoke if you got 'em.

Now I sit bored at work for the next 40 minutes......Strikeforce should just start the freaking maincard already and keep me entertained..

Anyone have Cokers number, and think they can make this happen?

Renato "Babalu" Sobral just walked up on Tito Ortiz and got in his face at cageside. The two were separated by Joe Riggs. No punches were thrown.
