Strikeforce Houston Predictions Results: I was 4-4 coming into this, so I wasn’t bad but nothing to be crazy about. I thought I had this card on lockdown but I was wrong. “King Mo” losing was one of the 2 biggest shockers of tonight. Big props to Rafael Cavalcante who took it to the Light Heavyweight champ, and now is the new Strikeforce Light Heavyweight champion. I also really though Tim Kennedy beat “Jacare”  but the judges thought other. Hopefully there will be a rematch because it was a close fight. This other shocker of the night was Chad Griggs beating highly favored Bobby Lashley. Lashley supposely was really messed up and left on a stretcher later after the fight. Overall, It was a pretty good card by Strikeforce but “King Mo” and Lashley losing might not have helped Strikeforce. Sadly, I did bad again going 6-5 bringing my Strikeforce Prediction totals to 10-9.
