Oh this should be good. But when does Jorge Santiago get his shot at the Strikeforce champ? Maybe he fights the winner of this one. Anyway, I don't know who I am picking yet. I'd like to buy into the hype on Cung Le, but Shamrock is a quality fighter and I don't know if he'll lose to a pure kickboxer. I can't wait to see this one.

santiago should definitely get the winner of this one, should be a good fight though. i cant bet against frank's experience and savvy, i think he is a more well rounded fighter and grinds out a ud.

Yeah, but it's hard to ignore all of that Cung Le hype. I'm a big Frank fan too, so this one is tough to pick for me. Luckily, I still have more than 2 months.

I'm not much of a Frank fan as I think he picks on weaker opponents for the most part, and I think Cung Le is still a bit overated as far as MMA goes...I dont know who to pick.... I might go with Cung le by 3rd TKO but that could change from here to there.

and is Jorge Masvidal in Strikeforce? he's fun to watch and is probably due to fight again soon

Just did an interview with Nam Pham today, I'll post it in a couple of days. He will be fighting on this card as well. Don't know the opponent yet though.

I know Cung has wrestling experience but if Frank gets the fight to the ground like he should, I would be surprised if he didn't finish Le there.
