I haven’t been following Mixed Martial Arts as much as I used to, and I’m not sure why. Perhaps it was watching the Last Emperor’s defeat. Perhaps it was watching Jake Shields leave StrikeForce for the UFC and perform less well than I’d hoped.

I still appreciate the fights, just don’t feel the enthusiasm I used to. Perhaps I just need to find a fighter I can get behind. I like watching Gegard Mousasi.

This morning I am watching StrikeForce Henderson vs Sobral II, which I recorded last night. The fact I recorded it and am watching it while I write this is an indication of my lack of attention. The one fight I look forward to is Scott Smith, who I enjoy watching fight. Hands of Steel is a man’s fighter, with a chin to match. He’s up now, so I log off.
