It was another wild and wacky weekend in combat sports, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) turned the reigns over to its ugly little sister on the Showtime network for Strikeforce: "Rockhold vs. Kennedy" last Saturday night (July 14, 2012) in Portland, Oregon.
It had its moments.
Chief among them was Nate Marquardt's highlight reel knockout of previously undefeated welterweight Tyron Woodley, good enough to leave the Rose Garden Arena with the division's vacant 170-pound championship. Elsewhere on the card, Robbie Lawler phoned it in, Keith Jardine did what we expected him to and some other folks went to war on the undercard.
