    This month, I'd like to start off in a fun corner of Brazil.
    --Flashback 2 days ago,
    Ronda wins big n' calls out Cyborg for a chance at Rousey's 135lb title;
    You remember that right? Here is Santos's response:

    [​IMG]
    For someone who didn't want to waste any breathe,
    I find it funny this is the most Cyborg talked in awhile
    & surprisingly the most scared she's seemed,
    though she has a good point.. Her health,
    after so much 'roid use, it may be hard to cut what she's gained :p.

    [​IMG]
    Coming closer to home,
    Gray Maynard has been scheduled to fight,
    against a fighter with a real chance to earn a higher rank winning,

    [​IMG]
    The fight will take place in Las Vegas @ UFC 155.
    Joe can prove if he's a choke artist or not, in more ways than one
    at the UFC's year end event on the 29th of December.
    I actually find this weird as Gray's last fight was NOT the most exciting;
    this speaks big of what the UFC thinks of Lauzon.


    If you would, let us Pat Stay-Moonwalk back to a familiar corner,
    2 days ago, Week 14 of the Rap Music Prediction League,
    Strikeforce: Ronda vs Sarah.
    Wondering what they were paid???
    Fighters in Strike-force get significantly less than the UFC
    (which is reasonable as the UFC makes much more money),
    and Ronald Souza surprisingly topped the Payroll.
    I will post from Highest paid to lowest, all wins including a WIN BONUS,
    I will state otherwise:

    [​IMG]
    Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza: $94,000
    Ronda Rousey: $40,000
    Miesha Tate: $38,000
    Tarec Saffiedine: $35,000
    Ovince St. Preux: $34,000
    Sarah Kaufman: $17,000 (no bonus, she lost Rousey)
    Derek Brunson: $13,000 (no bonus, he lost to Souza)
    Roger Bowling: $10,000 (no bonus, he lost to Saffiedine)
    Lumumba Sayers: $7,000 (no bonus, he lost to Smith)
    Anthony Smith: $6,000
    Julie Kedzie: $5,000 (no bonus, she lost to Tate)

    I have to admit,
    I'm a wii-bit surprised Ronda isn't making at LEAST a hundred Grand...
    Either way this is probably big money to her compared to the Olympics.
    It just really goes to show you Female MMA is really in the early stages.
    Other than that,
    I actually really like Strikeforce's payouts,
    you REALLY need that win bonus to get the sick payday,
    or the average UFC check,
    and as you see it always provides us with entertaining fights.


    Thoughts??

    oh yeah, P.S.

    MATT HAMILL has also slid under the radar and out of retirement.
    He's returning to fight in-front of the Toronto fans against LATE replacement,

    [​IMG]
    Vladimir Matyushenko takes this fight on a months notice,
    which may not be the smartest decision in the world for a 41 year old.
    With that being said, this is Vladimir's first fight of 2012,
    so I am assuming he will be at his best.
    This fight should actually be entertaining,
    I'll give a slight edge to Matt right now going in.
    The fight takes place September 22nd.

    Thats good to see Hamill is fighting again.

    I think its pretty obvious cyborg is scared of fighting Ronda, I remember after her last fight she said she would go down to 135 and claim that division too because there wasnt anybody left at 145 (i guess plans change when your number 1 weight cutter and supplement turns out to be a banned subsance). Its time to fucking step up like the man you are, drop your fucking needles and ten pounds of ugly off your body and fight the only person that has ever actually put fear into your cheating body. lol at top p4p female fighter in the world. Can anyone think of a fight that she had where she didnt have the exact amount or testosterone as a man or a man that juiced rather?

    cyborg would tool ronda. ronda doesn't really want that fight, its just a fun thing to say.

    can't believe ronda only made 2 grand more than miesha tate did on the undercard

    the fight from the womb

    I thought it was odd he retired to. Hopefully he picked up some new techniques during his absence.

    ^Honestly not to stunning to me as Tate was the reigning champ b4 hand. More stunning that her fight wasn't on the maincard, if she would of been there instead of Tarec, this card would be talked about even more as a success entertainment wise.

    Ratings for Strikeforce

    [​IMG]
    BEST OF 2012!!!!

    OVERALL, just for some insight,
    it is 5th OVERALL in the all-time Strikeforce ratings with 529,000.
    1st was XxNasty's hero Fedor's second bullet to the head,
    Fedor vs Silva, which garnered the Strikeforce best 741, 000!

    GREAT NEWS for Ronda Rousey, as Women's MMA isn't her solely,
    it is obviously riding on her back;
    now Coker and the Zuffa big boys know a Female main event can top even the best numbers the guys can pull off.
    (Ronda vs Sarah was the most watched SF event of 2012!!!)
    Carano was the last female fighter to do this, but even she didn't have the #1​

    In other news!

    [​IMG]
    Johny boy is back, and he is coming back in style!
    What better time to return to the Octagon, than UFC 154 in Montreal,
    the card G.S.P. is rumored to return against Condit in...

    Here, if he wins, he can truly make a claim for the title,
    and G.S.P. can see if he's truly impressed with Johny.


    His opponent you may ask????

    Both of these guys have been beating guys they shouldn't have. Which ever one wins here, I believe, will get what they deserve, whether that be a Belt shot or a Diaz fight.

    would rather see kampmann get it, although he is very flawed. still puts on good fights.

    i don't think tate is that big of a draw. ronda drew more viewers for her title fight with someone else than she did with tate, and the tate vs rousey card was better (as in better name value).

    this means that ronda has become a huge star since and likely strikeforce's biggest attraction.
