Great summation, agree with most points, especially about Barnett. If I never heard from this guy again, it would be too soon.

Exactly. UFC should just start their own developmental league. I've been saying this for years. They could put on good fights, and show them on Facebook or their website. I'd much rather watch some UFC cast offs fight each other than this shitty ass card full of mismatches, over rated fighters, and under achieves. Speaking of this card...Taric didn't look good, Marquardt looked shitty, big difference. He was slow, his technique was garbage, and his strategy made no sense. How many legs kicks do you have to take before switching stances? How about turning the corner on that single? How about countering that leg kick that you KNOW is coming with an overhand or takedown attempt? I've been saying Cormier went from under to over rated for a while. His boxing is average at best, his submission skills are non existent. And he's severely out of shape. I'll be surprised if he beats Mir actually.Barnett is so over rated. Whose the last quality fighter he's beat? I'll wait. And don't tell me he's a former champ because pretty sure he was on the juice and that was a million years ago fighting guys that JDS and Cain would've walked through. With that said though, I actually would love to see him fight someone like Struve though. Just don't interview him if he wins.Since I shitted on this card, I feel obligated to point out the positive. Jacare, Rockhold, and Moussasi should be good additions to a formerly thin MW division.Oh yeah, one more thing... So so happy I don't have to listen to Frank Shamrock do commentary anymore. What's up with the braces by the way??? They can't be their just to improve his smile. He's 40, and ugly. His smile is irrelevant. I know I ranted a bit. But damn this was a bad card and I feel like I earned it for sitting through that.

I had a hunch Tarec would upset Nate, had a two 4 fight parlays going and needed that extra oomph on the second one ... a "gamble fight", so to speak. I've had good advice I gotta admit.I've won 2 of 6 parlays so far... this card was too easy to bet on with even limited knowledge.Thanks for everything, Strikeforce, you've shattered the Fedor myth and I'll always remember you for this the most.
