Scott Smith (13-5) knows the challenges that await him Friday night.

The UFC, EliteXC and WEC veteran will make his debut for Strikeforce against fellow slugger Terry Martin (18-5). And despite taking the fight on just a week's notice, Smith recently told TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), that he'll be ready.

"Its real risky to take a fight on short notice, especially a guy like Terry Martin," Smith said. "But about three weeks ago I was supposed to fight on that EliteXC card for the Showtime / EliteXC card. I think it was Nov. 8. I was getting prepared for that. So I just kept on training through, hoping something would come up. And this came up. So I'm ready to go."

''Hands of steel'' connecting with ''Jaw made of glass'' = poetry in motion

Hands of steel all the way baby!!!! I think Martin has always been overrated. (well atleast in the beginning)

Scott Smith is a badass and always puts on a good show
