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.
