Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine Main Card Pick 'Em
Main Card (Showtime)
• Middleweight Championship: Luke Rockhold (C) vs. Keith Jardine
A wise man once said that anything is possible. He said it really really loud. That man was named Kevin Garnett.
Jardine looked awful in his last fight against Mousasi. He's won 2 of his last 8 fights. Yet somehow he get's a title shot based on name recognition and a virtually nonexistent Strikeforce Middlweight depth chart.
Rockhold on the other hand has been a machine, taking his first 7 victories via 1st Round finish. What even impressed me more was what he did last September in the Natti. Rockhold proved he could go the distance with a world class fighter in "Jacare" and strip him of the title.
I'll be taking Jardine this week based on a new law. It's called the law of Hendricks. A quick KO and a Middleweight Title for you Sir! Jardine via Mean Style
• Robbie Lawler vs. Adlan Amagov
Amagov via KO. Lawler has already seen his best days.
• King Mo Lawal vs. Lorenz Larkin
Lawal via anything you can do I can do better
• Tyron Woodley vs. Jordan Mein
Woodley can win this one easily if he decides to lay on the vicious Canadian. If Woodley decides to experiment a bit and test his stand up Mein could pull off the upset. I'm taking Mein via TKO here because that's who I'm rooting for and its the first Pick ' Em of the year. Why not have some fun. I don't mind playing from behind.
• Tarec Saffiedine vs. Tyler Stinson
Sponge via Decision of the Unanimous variety.
