Strikeforce 'Miami' Results and Live Stream (Saturday January 30th)
 

 
Nick Diaz meets Marius Zaromskis in the main event of Strikeforce’s card Saturday in Miami. Herschel Walker will also make his MMA debut, Bobby Lashley f!ghts and Cyborg Santos defends her title.

Being entertained by Wes Sims is not quite the same as believing him, and no one will gasp audibly if Bobby Lashley runs through him. If he does, it would be the latest in a series of so-what performances by Lashley, who created (potentially unrealistic) expectations in MMA with his collegiate wrestling background and high profile from professional wrestling.

Heavyweights are on a notoriously steep learning curve: Cain Velasquez drew Cheick Kongo in his sixth pro f!ght; Brock Lesnar won the world title in four. Sims will be Lashley’s fifth trip to the cage. Some acceleration is in order.

Saturday 30th January @ 23.00 (Eastern Time)

Looking for a card that captures the matchmaking dichotomy of a certain San Jose, Calif.-based promotion? Look no further than Strikeforce “Miami” this Saturday at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla.

The most intriguing and perhaps most important bit of business features Nick Diaz going against Lithuanian head kick connoisseur Marius Zaromskis for the vacant Strikeforce welterweight title. Backing up that quality violence, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos makes the first defense of her women’s middleweight championship, while Robbie Lawler and Melvin Manhoef lock horns in a full-scale recreation of “Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.”

In addition to those compelling bouts, we have the professional mixed martial arts debut of former NFL running back and human push-up machine Herschel Walker, as well as World Wrestling Entertainment convert Bobby Lashley and his f!ght with Wes Sims on a week’s notice. This should be interesting.

Strikeforce Welterweight Championship
Nick Diaz vs. Marius Zaromskis


The Breakdown: The stateside debut of Zaromskis, Dream’s premier headhunter, coincides with Diaz’s return to the welterweight division after an extended run at 185 pounds. During that run, Diaz often relied on his rangy punch-and-judy boxing style to stymie knockout-minded opponents, but Zaromskis seems like a different breed of beast.

The most glaring flaw in Diaz’s striking remains his poor movement, which will leave him vulnerable against Zaromskis, who almost always attacks at an angle. Just as troubling, Zaromskis has the ability to use his punches to disguise the head kicks he often throws behind them. A sufficiently adrenaline-drunk Diaz will go Rocky Balboa on anyone, but Rocky never had to worry about Clubber Lang sneaking in a high kick.

Grappling remains the great equalizer in this f!ght, as Diaz’s underrated ground-and-pound has proven just as effective as his Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Zaromskis relies mostly on using half guard and butterfly guard to create scrambles and escape back to the feet. However, Diaz has not used his grappling consistently for some time, and, as the world saw in Zaromskis’ bout with Jason High at Dream 10, obliging Lithuania’s top Akuma fan for even a few moments serves as a one-way ticket to the canvas.

The X-Factor: Diaz has proven tough enough to get dinged on the feet a few times before eventually taking down Zaromskis and performing some surgical work. Though most a.ssume Diaz can ground Zaromskis whenever he pleases, the recent improvements in Zaromskis’ takedown defense could contradict such a.ssumptions.

Like all great strikers, Zaromskis understands how to use range to his advantage and manipulate opponents into thinking they have to strike with him. It does not take a PhD in kickboxing to goad Diaz into a brawl, and given his recent success going blow-for-blow, Diaz may be ripe for the kicking.

Strikeforce Women’s Middleweight Championship
Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos vs. Marloes Coenen


The Breakdown: Coenen, Holland’s premier female export, has the potentially regrettable task of trying to pry the women’s middleweight championship away from a full-fledged mangler. The only way Coenen can manage that feat is by hitting a takedown and working a submission before Santos flies into a rage and turns her head into a goblet.

However, Santos has proven borderline impossible to move, let alone take down. Although Coenen has shown a fair deal of striking savvy before, she will find herself well out of her depth against Santos, who takes after the sadistic style of her husband, Evangelista. Consider it takedown or bust for Coenen.

The X-Factor: Not much technical panache exists in Santos’ style; she comes forward and swings until her opponent stops moving. Coenen can take advantage of that by simply waiting on her inevitable bull rush and diving for her legs. Most of Santos’ takedown defense consists of brute strength, but that same strength will not do her much good if she gets cornered into a grappling match.

-----

Robbie Lawler vs. Melvin Manhoef

The Breakdown: If Lawler values his motor functions, he will set aside pride and testosterone and take down Manhoef as fast as he possibly can. While Lawler’s history of violence is spectacular in its own right, Manhoef exists in a different striking universe. Getting into exchanges with the Dutch knockout artist will end poorly for Lawler and anyone else not named Anderson Silva.

All that stand-up talent has served Manhoef well considering his takedown defense and grappling remain the banes of his career. Unless Lawler obliges him on the feet, he will end up on the mat with one of the more underrated ground-and-pound artists in the game. As usual, Manhoef’s success depends greatly on his opponent’s game plan.

The X-Factor: Lawler is capable of taking down Manhoef. However, debate abounds about whether or not he will even try to do so or if he will resort to striking if Manhoef manages to stop his first few attempts. Staying disciplined in the heat of battle has never been Lawler’s strong suit, and discipline may be the only thing that can win him this f!ght.

-----

Bobby Lashley vs. Wes Sims

The Breakdown: After a small army of potential challengers disappeared as quickly as they were rumored, the always verbose Sims has stepped in to take on the hulking Lashley. Obvious comparisons to UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar aside, Lashley remains a legitimately talented prospect with a solid collegiate wrestling background.

Unless Lashley does something incomprehensibly dumb or Sims has somehow learned how to use his simian reach to his advantage, this f!ght looks like a lopsided wrestling meet. Sims’ pre- and post-f!ght interviews could turn into the most exciting aspects of this bout.

The X-Factor: It may be easy to discount Sims’ chances, but most of his failures have resulted from a simple lack of serious training. Flashes of talent abound throughout his career, and Lashley has not shown the sort of overwhelming dominance that makes him a shoo-in against anyone. What’s more, Lashley continues to split time between MMA and professional wrestling, which suggests he is an unfocused f!ghter waiting for a reality check.

Lashley is far too valuable a commodity for Strikeforce to put him in any real danger, and this matchup proves as much. Another ho-hum win for Lashley awaits, as he quickly puts Sims on the mat and pounds out a standard-issue technical knockout win.
