What’s up this weekend

Strikeforce at the Dome
Why you should care: Here’s an event you’ll actually be able to watch if you want to – it’s on HDNet. Past Bob Sapp, Maurice Smith and Rick Roufus there’s not too many big names but the card is stacked with talented lesser known fighters. These guys have a great knack for landing future stars. There’s another fighter I first saw on a Strikeforce card … who the hell was he? Oh yeah: Clay Guida.

MFC15 : Rags to Riches
Why you should care: MFC fights are the shit, plus it’s got Pete Spratt! If we don’t support Pete, he might go back to making more terrible action films. Again, HDNet’s got yo’ back. They’ll be showing this card live as well on Friday night.

DEEP 34th Impact
Why you should care: 8 man three round middleweight tournament including Ryuta Sakurai and Riki Fukuda! Plus a female flyweight tournament. I’m usually not a big fan of the smaller Japanese MMA shows but I never pass up on tournaments.

Shooto and ZST are also holding shows in Japan, so if you happen to be a millionaire who wants to spend a weekend in Tokyo watching fights, this is a good time to do it. And if you need a drinking buddy to down sake and ogle hot foreign bitches, I’m down for that too. I’m so very, very down.

Last but not least, the Kim Couture smoker fight is going down this weekend as well, although HDNet will only be showing that next week after the (barf) IFL season premiere. Still, I hope that Sunday morning brings news that her opponent turned out to be Dana White in a blonde wig, and he put Kim in the goddamn hospital.

    Kim will get schooled. She looked absolutely gutless in “Inside Xtreme Couture”.

    I don’t know about foreign bitches but I’m down to watch some Japanese chicks dressed as schoolgirls riding Japanese businessmen like donkeys. Ride that donkey, donkey…

    “…another fighter I first saw on a Strikeforce card … who the hell was he? Oh yeah: Clay Guida…”

    Was that the one where Guida beat Josh Thompson for the Strikeforce lightweight belt when he was solely brought in to be the sacrificial lamb to the hometown thompson?

    In an interview Guida said his family almost got their asses kicked in the stands cause the crowd was insane and very pro-thompson.

  • fightlinker

    Yep, that’s the one! I still wanna see the followup fight where he loses to gilbert melendes in (surprise surprise) a terrible decision

  • Schifftis

    why the fuck do I not get HDNet.. I fucking hate Cablevision.. Jeff Dolan is a fat fuck

  • Accomando

    “…he loses to gilbert melendes in (surprise surprise) a terrible decision…”

    Well, the only thing terrible about that decision was the fact that Melendez only won with a split decision, it should have been unanimus for Gilbert.

    I am a huge guida fan, but even he will tell you he got worked pretty good by melendez and didn’t have an answer for him at all. Guida is a tough SOB, took the beatin’ like a man, 5 rounds of it.

  • fightlinker

    Now i wanna see that fight even more!

  • ilostmydog

    Yeah man, the only thing terrible about that was that some judge gave the fight to Guida. Gilbert won every single round on my card.

    I’m not a fan of women’s MMA, but if there’s ever footage of Kim Couture having her face turned bloody and her arm broken, please… email me it.
