Thirteen fights, lots and lots of photos — too many of Leslie Smith vs Sarah Kaufman of course — so I can’t even tell you anything yet, probably saving all my tidbits for a video or two. But honestly, I couldn’t really pare it down too much more without omitting some wild action so [...]
FINALLY. I am done with my weekend of MMA and local travels and I have finished sifting through Strikeforce Challengers: Voelker vs Bowling III. Certainly it was different to cover Strikeforce from the media standpoint for the first time in over two years but it gave me a chance to brush up on shooting [...]
Hey! Quick post of the weigh-in photos! Will regale you with stories later in the evening! Everybody made weight, awesome! *Edit* I’m here in Las Vegas covering Strikeforce Challengers: Bowling vs Voelker III and eight glasses of water into my day and I am still parched.

This week, Casey and I arrived in Everett early to document the lead-up to the big title fight on Friday’s Strikeforce Challengers’ card, Sarah Kaufman defends her Women’s 135 belt against the formidable and experienced fighter, Roxanne Modafferi.
While spending my entire very late night listening to MMAWeekly radio, I uploaded these photos from Friday’s Strikeforce Challengers card for your perusal.
