"Strikeforce does what the fans want. I've had a few tough losses in a row and the fans are still there supporting me, wanting to watch me fight and that's a great feeling. A guy like Anderson Silva has been accused of having some boring fights. Even Georges St. Pierre has had some boring fights. That's not my style, that's not how I fight, but on the other hand, I'm not a world champion like those guys too, so they're smart, they're at the top. I'm out there to fight and have fun. The way I fight is fun for me so I'm gonna keep doing it. Guys like Chris Lytle and Chris Leben, those are the guys I look up to, those are the guys I wanna fight like."
Strikeforce Middleweight slugger Scott Smith (via MMA Weekly), who damned near drowned while testing the waters at 170-pounds, is back in his natural weight class and ready to put on a show against Lumumba Sayers at the Strikeforce: "Tate vs. Rousey" Showtime event scheduled for tomorrow night (March 3, 2012) at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. "Hands of Steel" wants to keep his fight game similar to that of UFC fan favorites Chris Leben and Chris Lytle, but does Smith have anything left in the tank at this stage of his career? Or will Saturday night be the last time we see him under the Strikeforce banner?
