I don't think longer posts equal more points.

Naa, that's the list I found for the most watched MMA fights. Quite surprising that Kimbo Slice is #1.

Not when its a major channel like CBS against a cable channel like ****e. If Kimbo headlined StrikeForce on CBS and Brock Lesnar headlined UFC on CBS, i'd be pretty sure Kimbo would do monster numbers but Brock and the whole UFC card in general would do Superbowl numbers.

I like other orgs getting some love the, it cant be all UFC, and seeing how the UFC is the WWE of MMA, Strikeforce puts on some good cards with their mostly second tier talent.

The presentation and commentating needs some serious help tho and Dana White seriously needs to send Goldberg to Strikeforce and pick up my man Mauro in return.

guys, i'm joking. go over to the Lounge thread & check out the "max your points threads". you do get more points the longer they are.


on a serious note, it seems like strike forces card's have been ridiculously entertaining....esp compared to the recent snoozers in the UFC. Silva/Maia and Penn/Edgar better be more exciting than GSP/Hardy!
