Another great night of fights — including two you didn’t even get to see if you weren’t at the Nationwide Arena on Saturday, but fret not, Strikeforce is working on getting the video out to you all very soon. I’ve included photos from those two bouts, Gurgel vs Vaughan and Bowling vs Thornburg, so you get a taste of the action.
We’ve been on a tear lately, nonstop for me since Diaz vs Cyborg and we’re looking forward to a few days of sweet relaxation (a.k.a. backing up a month of files, cleaning up headquarters, and spending time with the dogs). I had a great time in Columbus, Ohio for the Strikeforce fights and would like to tip my hat to all the athletes, especially Liz Carmouche and Marloes Coenen for their amazing fight and amazing courage. Carmouche is a force for sure and she’ll definitely be champion one day.
Wish I could’ve stuck around for some more time at the Arnold Classic before returning home, just because it was my first time there and I really didn’t get enough of a feel for the expo. Maybe next year! Hope you like the photos and see below for Casey’s post-fight interview with Marloes Coenen that references our trip to Red Lobster.
