Welcome 6th Rounders, to my picks and predictions for Strikeforce. “Evolution” will air Saturday night via Showtime (in the US) beginning at 10:00 p.m. EST (under card at 8). This card features the return of Cung Le and a Lightweight title unification bout. A solid line-up calls for solid picks, right? Whether you agree or disagree, leave your thoughts by commenting.
As a lead writer here, there’s a certain “responsibility” for making quality peeks into the future. That being said, anything can (and does) happen in mixed martial arts. With an overall 188-118 record thus far since our launch, let’s get into how I, Gray D., see the action inside the cage going down from San Jose.
