Re: StrikeForce "Heavy Artillery" on May15th

Never been impressed with Overeem. I think Rogers will take him if he lets his hands go.

I'm going with Silva over Arlovksi and Randleman over Gracie. I don't know the rest of these people.

Re: StrikeForce "Heavy Artillery" on May15th

Rogers vs Overreem
Rogers via KO

Arloski vs Silva
Arloski hopefully returns from the Rogers KO in a dominant fashion, I have a hard time seeing Silva take this one.

Jacare vs Villasenor
Jacare subs Villasenor, I read somewhere that Jacare climbed a rope one handed

Gracie vs Randleman
Randleman is pretty washed up, Gracie hopefully hasn't been effected by the Gracie MMA curse. Gracie via sub.

Overeem over Rogers via KTFO.
Arlovski over Silva via KO.
Jacare over Villasenor via armlock.
Gracie over Randleman via RNC.
Britt over Feijao via KO.
Shaolin over Beerbhom via triangle.

I'm predicting all fights finishing...but it's more wishful thinking than anything. I fully anticipate at least 2 fights going to judges' decision.

Oh, but as the MMA fan I take you for, you should! Three QUALITY fights with three top fighters in Shaolin, Feijao, and Gracie. Some are calling Britt to be the real deal and to upset Feijao; we'll see. Guaranteed exciting matchs regardless!

This card is more stacked than many UFC cards!

Re: StrikeForce "Heavy Artillery" on May15th

A great night of fights! I'm just happy it wasn't on CBS or the broadcast would've been 3+ hours. Overeem destroyed Rogers, I'm not sure why some are surprised, but now it's time for the main event...will Overeem pass the drug tests?

I'm not surprised that Overeem won but I'm surprised that Rogers didn't do better. I wonder if he allowed himself to be overly intimidated/mentally broken.

The drug test will only prove that Overeem has not taken steroids lately. It is a shame to see enhanced athletes dominate those who play fair.

Overeem throwing Rogers to the mat looked to me initially like Rogers tripped up and fell on his own. However, if Overeem did actually throw him, he made that look easy. I'm not certain that Overeem's use of PED's helped him defeat Rogers: Rogers fought a completely different fight than when he fought Fedor, he was backing away and not engaging. Overeem dominated via superior striking and overall superior skills.

The fight with Fedor-Overeem will be pretty exciting, Fedor hasn't fought someone like Overeem in quite some time. However, I have confidence that he will find a way to win, like he always does.

On a different note, was it just me or was Arloski's striking WORSE than the last time he fought? I thought he wanted to be a professional boxer, yet he stood flat footed, didn't really throw any good combinations and let Silva get the better of him throughout the fight.
