Just wanted to start a more general thread here for MMA, for news & links on events, rather than using the older UFC ones.
Trying to get some links for the Strikeforce event shortly
This Saturday, Strikeforce and M-1 GLOBAL will make history when they present a Mixed Martial Arts fight card that will feature the universally recognized No. 1 male and female fighters in the world stepping into the same cage on the same night for the first time.
Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko , the world’s No. 1 pound for pound fighter, will take on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and top-ranked heavyweight Fabricio Werdum in the main event. The No. 1 female fighter, Cris Cyborg, will defend her Strikeforce Women’s World 145-pounds Championship against Jan Finney in the semi-main.
Cung Le and Josh Thomson will also appear in featured fights on Saturday.
Le, of San Jose, is a former Strikeforce middleweight titlist. He relinquished the belt last year to pursue an acting career that has since spawned two major motion picture releases, but returned Dec. 19, 2009, at HP Pavilion to face Sacramento’s Scott Smith. Le dominated before losing via a shocking third-round KO. He’ll take on Smith in a rematch of one of MMA’s most epic come-from-behind knockouts.
Thomson, of San Jose, will return to the cage for the first time since losing the Strikeforce world lightweight title to top rival Gilbert “El Nino” Melendez on Dec. 19, 2009. He’ll face dangerous submission artist Pat “Bam Bam” Healy in a lightweight bout.
Looking forward to fights with Cung Le and Cris Santos in particular!
