Big timmy just lost in like 34 seconds to some unknown named Abe Wagner.
Another memorable moment occurred during that fight as well, when Rampage pretty much only yelled, "GET UP ABE" throughout the entire bout. That complex coaching unfortunately didn't help Abe prevent the Grand Canyon from appearing on his forehead.
Timmay, Timmay, Timmay...

Poor TImmay still thinks he's a good striker. IMO, that was a slightly early stoppage but I think he would've been finished regardless. Can't wait for the card tonight, I'll have my picks up soon.
Walker over Carson by Unanimous Decision: i can't imagine strikeforce putting one of their most visible fighters in against anyone good right now, nor should they to be honest.
Prangley over Gracie by (T)KO, Round 2: Gracie might be the best competition bjj of all-times, but his striking is horrible. obviously if the fight hits the ground, Prangley will tap faster than the word is spelled. i think Prangley will find a way to keep this standing and pull the upset
Jacare over Lawler by Submission, Round 3: Lawler has the power to end this at anytime, and he has the wrestling to keep this standing long enough to try and hit Jacare. Lawler also tends to make stupid mistakes in his fights that get him beat (i.e. leaving his neck exposed against Shields). I see Lawler making a mistake at some point and he'll end up on the ground as a result, where he'll be tapped in short order.
Diaz over Cyborg by (T)KO, Round 3: simply put, Diaz outclasses Cyborg in almost every area. Cyborg kicks better, but not to the point that it will matter. Diaz will use his punches to wear Cyborg down over time and he will finish him in the 3rd.

Diaz is such a beast. Hell of a fight.
Another Strikeforce card with all finishes.

That was a very slick armbar.

Nick's pain threshold is amazing those leg kick were vicious.
Nick Diaz shows what studying an opponent can do to your chin. Punches always hurt less and have less effect when you know they are coming, or thrown by an opponent slightly out of their range.
It's a shame we'll never see Nick Diaz vs. GSP....or if it does happen, one or both fighters will be beyond their prime.
I am really interested to see what would happen if GSP took Diaz down. If Diaz could use his legit BJJ black belt to work from the bottom. Nick Diaz has a longer range and would prob try to keep GSP at a distance for as long as he could. I am sure GSP would be looking or a takedown.
Not trying to say Nick Diaz is the better fighter at this point, not at all, just saying I think it would be an interesting matchup.
All the Diaz haters were quick to say that Nick was flipping off female Cyborg because you can see him say "**** you *****" but it turns out to just be some butthurt Cyborg fans.

Gracie over at mixedmartialarts.com posted this
"Remember when Nick was saying "fuk you"? Well, when Nick was walking into the ring..there was 3 older Latino dudes sitting front row, about 20 feet away from the ramp where I was sitting..straight cholos..lol. They were flippin Nick off all angry. After a while I could tell that they were not kidding around. Nicks team basically ignored them. I thought maybe that Nick did not see them. Then when the fight was over..Nick ran over to them..jumped on top of the fence..and flipped them off..then he took out his mouthpiece and threw it at them. Then one of them threw his cup of beer into the ring. Watch again and you'll see liquid. Then..about 20 Nortenos from 209 who were sitting above these 3 older Latino..started throwing their water bottles and cups. Then one bottle hit a skinny innocent white dude and he freaked out and threw a chair..lol. By now, the 3 cholos were a little scared and just stood there waiting for security to escort them out. Andris Biedrins of the Golden State Warriors was sitting behind us and as this was happening his entourage swooped him up and took him away before he got hurt. When you have a million dollar NBA contract you'd probably do the same!! Chairs flying can't be good!! "

Awesome night for BJJ last night. Roger and Jacare both finished via submission and so did Nick Diaz.
I was impressed with Nick's standup against Cyborg. He'll probably start working on checking leg kicks after this fight because I'm sure his next opponent, whoever that may be will try and chop his leg up after seeing this fight. He even mentioned it when he was talking to Mauro, so I think he'll be ready next time. Otherwise, his game looks pretty good. Wrestling is really the only hole in his game. If he could develop some good takedown defense or good takedowns he would be top 5/top 3 IMO.

Everyone see this old Pride video of Mirko punkin' Mauro (current Strikeforce PBP guy) Pretty awesome.....hell, I'd be scared too.
Nick Diaz is one of the very best fighters to watch in the history of MMA, IMO. Whatever you think of his personality, you have to admit the guy is must-see TV for MMA. I mean I can't remember the last Nick Diaz fight I wasn't on the edge of my seat for. His fight against Sherk?
Was it Shamrock who called him Ironman last night? It's perfect, it's crazy. Here's this skinny, unassuming guy, who can take flush shots all fight long without skipping a beat. Imagine throttling someone so much and he still asks you to "come on *****." What the ****?
I've actually read people say Nick is fake. Really? Sure doesn't seem that way. Sure seems like he fights with pretty much the most badass style in the sport. Take huge shots, don't feel pain, never get tired, break the guy's will, hit him 1,500 times, then wrap him up like a bow.
I like Diaz but he is'nt fighting top caliber UFC guys. He would get worked by GSP and a few other 170lb pounders like Fitch,Alves etc.
I'd like to see him and BJ fight I think that could be a hellva fight but i'll take baby J.
