Cerrone says this is his last fight at 155, he's cutting to 145. But Reed Harris says Cerrone is NOT cutting yet. This could get interesting.

Koch vs. Massouh starts the night. First round could be considered 10-10 based on PBP, second round very close. Depending on how the 3rd round goes, this one could be close enough to be a draw.

Edit: Wow, judges certainly didn't think it was that close. 3 30-27s, Koch.

1-0 with 7 points to start off the night. Thought Pickett would get the sub earlier but wow a peruvian necktie..impressive. Surprised to see Massouh drop another decision too.

Pickett needs a new nickname. "One Punch" is not exactly a name befitting a guy who usually wins by submission.

Visher TKOs Buck at 4:45 of round 1.

He's got some serious power and when he connects it is lights out. Its a very fitting hame imo.

Micklewright beat Corbbrey, 3 30-27s. Junkie got this one wrong, they scored it 29-28 Corbbrey. Apparently Corbbrey was quite inactive in top position on the ground and it cost him.

Palaszewski takes a SD. 30-27 Palaszewski, 30-27 Pettis, 29-28 Palaszewski. Junkie had it a close 29-28 Pettis.

What was Horodecki thinking???? Turning your back and running away from a good striker, I am not suprised it resulted in a KO, what a mistake. And The reverse triangle/kneebar attempt by Cowboy was pretty awesome, I would have loved to see it be finished with that.

Am I the only one that was disgusted with Horodecki's performance?

If you're going to turn your back on your opponent, especially one that's a 6'2" lightweight, and lazily walk away with your hands down, you deserve to get headkick KO'd. That was an amateur mistake at best but his whole performance seemed lazy and weak.

Maybe it's sour grapes but I expected more from a veteran like Horodecki.

Having picked Horodecki, I was really shocked. I dont know if he was really hurt so he gave his back or what, but regardless it was really sad to watch him go out like that.

I was going back and forth on this fight because I used to watch IFL and am a fan of Horodecki....that being said when I was watching I found myself not caring who won, I just wanted to see something explosive and exciting. Thanks to Njokuani I got what I wanted. Awesome Gif!!!!!

Strikeforce Evolution overtook WEC as my 2nd favorite promotion on Saturday night. Such a fun card to watch. It had everything. A nice submission win (Jacare), a nice TKO (King Mo), a 5-round war for a title (Melendez/Thomson) and a comeback victory from hell (Smith over Le). I couldn't be happier with an event.

I'm glad I chose to watch Strikeforce over WEC.
