Cakewalk for El Nino

Mrs. Cyborg by man jaw

Will Mousassi get his mojo back or was it all smoke and mirrors?

 Cakewalk? I doubt it. Masvidal is a great fight, his stand up is excellent too. He made Noons look like a bitch and no ones done that in a while, besides Krazy horse knocking his ass out. Main event will have fireworks coming from my TV, I CAN'T WAIT.

Cakewalk might be a bit of an exaggeration but I still think Gil is too aggressive for him. Masvidal has had problems finishing lately.

 I too think El Nino will take it, but I think it will be a much better fight than most expect.  I think Masvidal has been a sleeper for some time and has upped his game in his last several fights.

Chael Sonnen was losing a bunch of fights to guys like Terry Martin until he hit his stride a few ytears back.

I think Masvidal is similar.

The Strikeforce website ( http://www.strikeforce.com/events/2011/12/strikeforce-melendez-vs-masvidal/ ) is also listing this bout on the preliminary card:

- Jerron Peoples 4-1 vs. "Relentless" Roger Bowling 9-2

Keith Jardine is off this card and he'll be getting a title shot on the Jan. 7th, 2012 card against Luke Rockhold. Phone Post

I am most looking forward to Mousasi vs OSP! Mousasi is looking to bounce back and show he is still a top guy. OSP has been crushing people, but this is a big step up for him.

p.s.

Fuck TA!

Great opening fight. I've never been a Noons fan but he is finally growing on me. Outstanding hands for MMA.

 I thought he blocked and slipped more punches than the announcers gave him credit for but he was not busy enough and didn't throw many power shots behind his jab. He lumped Melendez up pretty good with his jab though.

I expected more from Mousasi. Got the "W" but wasn't up to his previous form. Was it all just matchupos?
