    Lawler tries to keep it standing. Sheilds tries to take it to the mat. Lawler hurts Sheilds coming in for the takedown and wins by tko.

    no opponent yet for Overeem? i guess the hwts like their balls too much.

    Mark - I see the same thing and I think the fight won't last a round.

    Nice looking card, Strikeforce rides the same guys a lot which makes sense so fans get to know them.

    Riggs-Baroni has potential but I think one of them will mess it up (gas or get KOd too easily)
