StrikeForce: Britt vs. Sayers results and fighter salaries

Did you watch StrikeForce Challengers 20? Where you sufficiently entertained? You should have been.

Sayers came out and brutalized Britt in 28 seconds. Ronda Rousey took another arm home after 39 seconds (that’s the 2nd arm she’s basically ripped off another body if you’re keeping score). Amagov came out and proved himself game, and somebody to keep an eye on. Cook vs. Smith was a great back and forth exciting grappling display iwth Cook coming out on top. Let’s not forget BObby Green’s submission of J.P. Reese in the 3rd round.

Strikeforce Challengers 20 started the weekend off right for me. What about you?
