Pretty mediocre PPV, mainly due to the terrible decision(IMO) to place Coleman in the main event. First, no one cares about Coleman any more. Second, he still really hasnt beaten a top tier fighter in years. Bonnar doesnt come close to counting. Was anyone surprised that Couture demolished him, especially when even in losses Couture has been competitive against elite fighters.
Even the undercard was thrown together poorly and it was saved by the decent Sonnen/Marquardt(sp) fight.

Yea pretty much, Coleman is just a name and like you said he's not a top tier fighter. At this point he's not even a mediocre fighter. Because of this I'm hoping Randy does not get a title shot at the LHW strap that some pundits are saying he may get.

Yeah, not a great PPV by any means. Not horrible though. I enjoyed seeing Paulo Thiago put Swick to sleep. 2/3 AKA WW's ain't bad Paulo. Swick needs to go back to MW though. He looks like a cancer patient at WW.
Disappointed Nate lost. Wasn't a very exciting fight by any means either. Nice to see Serra get a win though.
lagwagon & ASU, both dead right on Coleman. As for Randy, I agree he shouldn't get a title shot right now, but I'm at a loss as for who the UFC could match him up with next that a) he could beat and b) would be a big enough name to justify giving him the title shot.
UFC 110 looks to be good though.

Yeah, I think Mousasi's got 1 or 2 fights left on his strikeforce contract. After that,it seems pretty obvious he's coming to the UFC.

By the way Vitor pulled out of his title bout with Silva. Maia is slated to take his spot

So apparently Fedor & M-1 don't like Strikeforce anymore and want to re-work the contract.
Overeem might be fighting Rogers in a non-title fight? WTF??? Coker needs his head examined. The belt hasn't been defended in 2 years and he finally convinces his champ to come back and it's not even a title fight. Incredibly lame.
BTW, Fedor doesn't want to fight Overeem because of steroids, but wants to fight Barnett (provided he's no longer on steroids?)
Arlovski signed with Strikeforce and is supposed to take on Bigfoot Silva.
Marcus Davis is attending the Frank Mir school of hyping non existent fights and has said he hopes Dan Hardy dies of Aids. Class, pure class.
