anyone seen this fight from strikeforce? its on the videos section

i just wanted to mention joe riggs transition from the having the hooks on the back to the armbar, one of the best submission transitions i've ever seen, should have finished it off though

on another note, what did they have that women on the commentary for she was a right idiot

Yeah, she was pretty annoying. Apparently she's one of Hugh Hefner's live-in girlfriends... the stories that he must have...

I would have to say that the best transition i have ever seen was when Thales Lietes has Floyd's back and he baited Floyd to buck and he bucked rite into and Arm Triangle Choke

Riggs looked smooth as butter during transitions which is something he needed to work on. He already has heavy hands now with improved ground skills it could only make him more dangerous.

This is what I think of Eugene Jackson.....Eugene Vale Tudo

Edit: Anyone who isn't really excited about Wanderlei coming to UFC should should check out my link.


He couldn't put up a fight back then... why would he win against a top 20 now?

It's nice to see Jackson fight though.He's one of those fighters you could officialy call an "old timer" now.LOL.They probably should have put him against another opponent though.
