Strikeforce Predictions Results: I was 32-29-2 coming in, which sucks. I picked a bunch of upsets in this stacked card and did pretty good. Anyways, I went 6-3 and I’m now a sad 38-32-2.

Some Notes: Can’t believe Rockhold beat Jacare. I have to say I was shocked, and more shocked by one judges score of 50-45 which is insane to say the least. Cormier with the TKO!!!! I was rooting for him to win this so bad, and he came through. He’s been tearing through whatever SF gives him, and his biggest win. A night of upsets which include Davis, Mein, Healy, Rockhold, and Cormier. The main event was fairly easy for Barnett as he beat up Kharitonov in only one round.
