MMA: Strikeforce Miami Report


Bobby Lashley defeated Wes Sims by TKO in Round 1

Sims came out and began mocking Lashley by challenging him to a pro wrestling test of strength to which Lashley ignored and took him down to begin pounding on him until the referee stopped the fight. Lashley said in his post fight video that he hopes to next fight another prospect like himself where he can take it slowly and improve or just go straight to the top for a title match against either Allistar Overeem or the best heavyweight in the world, Fedor! 

Robbie Lawler stopped Melvin Manhoef by KO in Round 1

Lawler was getting manhandled by Melvin the entire fight and looked to be nearly finished before throwing a magical and extremely lucky one punch KO to Manhoef's face that stopped the fight immediately.This was the most incredible comeback victory I have ever witnessed. Be sure to find this on Youtube and see for yourself when it pops up. You won't be disappointed.

Herschel Walker won against Greg Nagy by TKO in Round 3

Not a good fight but Walker did a admirable job in his MMA debut at the age of 47. He dominated Nagy the entire time but just seemed like he didn't catch the openings that most veterans would have noticed to where he could have won him this fight much earlier. Still not a bad performance considering all the factors involved. Walker says he may fight again since he did so well.

Cris “Cyborg” Santos defended the Strikeforce Women's Featherweight title against Marloes Coenen by TKO in Round 3

Cyborg showed the MMA world why she is the best women's fighter currently active. After beating the face of women's MMA Gina Carano in her last fight she employed the same strategy that won her the title this time and walked away the winner once again. All I can say is... "Einhorn is a man!!!" (Sorry Cyborg but people are always questioning your downstairs mix up)

Nick Diaz became Strikeforce Welterweight Champion by beating Marius Zaromskis by TKO in Round 1

The bad boy of MMA and former UFC jobber to the stars Nick Diaz wins his first championship by showcasing his much improved striking ability in his TKO win over a very impressive Zaromskis. These two guys went to war in what could be considered to be an early fight of the year contender already. Nick's brother and current UFC fighter Nate was in his corner cheering on his brother in his victory. No one knows exactly who is next in line for a title shot but one has to wonder if Robbie Lawler is the man for the job after his amazing performance tonight?
