ENFIDL:Time for some Strikeforce picks:Barnett vs Kharitonov: Barnett (I'm having a hard time picking this one, Barnett's a beast but Kharitonov I have felt is the sleeper in the field)Bigfoot vs Cormier: BigfootJacare vs Rockhold: Jacare (can't wait for the Kennedy rematch)Lawal vs Gracie: Lawal
j0z3r:I think there is some validity to the question of Shields' mental state. More so than that, I think we're beginning to see what I have suspected for a while, that Shields is not a top WW...a good fighter sure, but not well rounded enough to be considered top ten. When he couldn't get Ellenberger down, he basically didn't know what to do, the guy has like zero striking. He's no longer a big fish in a small pond, now he's swimming with sharks.
ENFIDL:Hendo is back in the UFC. Not like we didn't see it coming lol He's gonna face Shogun at UFC 139, rumor is they're headlining, in what I think will be a title eliminator for the winner of whoever Rashad fights for the belt.
dowjr1:Condit's a tough guy and has good BJJ but too skinny to really threaten GSP...

j0z3r: dowjr1:Condit's a tough guy and has good BJJ but too skinny to really threaten GSP...With all due respect, I think you're mistaken. GSP is a force to be reckoned with for sure, but if Condit can put his tools together, he's a tough fight for anybody, GSP included. Can't wait to see this one.
