Saffiedine out points Scott Smith for decision win


Tarec Saffiedine put on an impressive striking display in winning a one-sided victory over Scott Smith on Saturday night's Strikeforce card, easily winning and handing Smith his third straight loss.

It was a solid performance by Saffiedine, who improves to 11-3 in his MMA career. And it was tough to see Smith, a longtime favorite of MMA fans for his hard-hitting style, fail to land much of anything and get completely outclassed by Saffiedine. Smith, who's 17-9, may be nearing the end of the road.

Smith is just fighting for the money at this point. He obviously doesn't want to do this and he was never *that* great at it, unfortunately.

I dont mean to sound disrespectful to smith. He went through some wars for strikeforce when they were still growing and I hope they take care of him for all the wear and tear they put on him but god damn does Smith need to find better gameplans.

Did Saffedine look really, really impressive or did Smith just look terrible?
