We’re in Oklahoma City for the last ever Strikeforce. I’m sad to see it go. I’ve been with Strikeforce for almost four years (though honestly it seems longer). Casey did a Fight Journal with Daniel Cormier chronicling a day here in Oklahoma City as he preps for his fight against Dion Staring. Enjoy!
We enlisted the help of Bimb0_Slice, aka Meleth Gonzales, to interview fighters at the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix finals. We’re pretty amazed she agreed to do it since Meleth flew in from Turkey that same day and was basically running on fumes and media room coffee.

We’re here in San Jose covering the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix final and Melendez vs Thomson III. Check out the video highlights of today’s press conference and you can see the photos on the Showtime website here.

Below are the weigh-in photos + Jorge “Macaco” Patino weighing in after the stage had been torn down. Casey’s here working for AOL and he made a video on fight week events, which is below the [...]
Photos from last Friday’s Strikeforce Challengers Series at the SaveMart Arena in scenic Fresno, or as we like to say, Fres-Yes! Threw in a couple of the studio shots as well. Overall, solid show except Cormier didn’t knock out John Devine at an angle where I could ever get a photo of it. Ha. Flew [...]
