Heavyweight Grand Prix Semifinals: Josh Barnett d. Sergei Kharitonov (Submission – Round 1, 4:28)

Hey, it’s the one fight I predicted correctly!  Barnett made surprisingly quick work out of Kharitonov, winning his second tournament fight by arm triangle choke.  Barnett is my favorite in the finals at this point as he’s been pretty impressive thus far.

Heavyweight Grand Prix Semifinals: Daniel Cormier d. Antonio Silva (KO – Round 1, 3:56)

I was stunned by this one.  Daniel Cormier appears to have boulders on the ends of his arms as he was absolutely rocking Silva with every strike he threw.  Cormier completely stunned Silva and most of the MMA world with this huge win.

Middleweight Title: Luke Rockhold d. (c) Ronaldo Souza (Unanimous Decision)

I…don’t even know what I saw last night.  I’m particularly embarrassed given how little of a chance I gave Luke Rockhold, but he kept Jacare confused all night and took a clear decision to win the Strikeforce Middleweight Title.

Light Heavyweight: Muhammed Lawal d. Roger Gracie (KO – Round 1, 4:37)

Okay, so I predicted this one correctly too, but it feels like a loss.  I was pulling for Gracie, who got knocked out cold by King Mo at the end of the first round.

Lightweight: Pat Healy d. Maximo Blanco (Submission – Round 2, 4:27)

Blanco opened up promisingly enough with some scary looking strikes and his normal wildness.  Then he kicked Pat Healy in the face illegally…a lot.  Then he got submitted.  So really, not a good night for Max White.

Light Heavyweight: Rafael Cavalcante d. Yoel Romero (KO – Round 2, 4:51)

Welterweight: Jordan Mein d. Evangelista Santos (TKO – Round 3, 3:18)

Light Heavyweight: Mike Kyle d. Marcos Rogerio de Lima (Unanimous Decision)

Women’s Welterweight: Alexis Davis d. Amanda Nunes (TKO – Round 2, 4:53)

Middleweight: Dominique Steele d. Chris Mierzwiak (Unanimous Decision)
