This Saturday (June 6th) from the Scottrade Center in St Louis Missouri, Strikeforce will be hosting its second major event since Scott Coker gobbled-up the Pro-Elite roster. Check out my thoughts on the scheduled main card bouts!
This week I managed to score some time with Drew "the Massacre" McFedries, a well-spoken, yet dangerous fighter who recently sent Xavier Foupa-Pokam packing with his grenade-stuffed cinderblocks. Check out what Drew had to say about his training, his daily battle with Crohn's disease, and the pleasure of knocking his opponents silly, after the jump!
Another highlight reel KO from the Bellator FC series. In this one Chad Leondhart and Dan Keenan do their best UFC Undisputed impersonation (mouthpiece flying out and all). Take a look.

Here on Brad's Friday Fight Bodega (catchy name, no?) my goal is to bring some of the lesser known and seen fights to the forefront. I'll feature at least one fight a week, and I shall certainly try to make it a good one. You will see no UFC, no Affliction and no Strikeforce in the Bodega. I may feature the occasional DREAM or Sengoku fight, but I hope to keep those to a minimum as well (although certain fights, like the recent Hideo Tokoro-Abel Cullum fight deserve to be seen by all). Here's a couple week old fight for your perusal from Shooto's "Shooto Tradition Final" card which took place on May 10th between Willamy Chiquerim and Yusuke Endo.
Frank Mir gives his thoughts on his upcoming fight with Brock Lesnar at UFC 100 for UFC Fight Club members prior to UFC 98.

UFC 98 is in the books and so is one of the surprise upsets of the year with Frankie Edgar receiving the nod from judges in his dominating performance over the UFC's former lightweight king Sean Sherk. When the fight was first announced, Sherk was thought by most to be the clear favourite, as many believed that Edgar was physically too small to deal with Sherk—one of the most explosive wrestlers in the division. However, Saturday’s fight had some surprises in store, specifically in the form of the game plan employed by Sherk. Much like in his fight with BJ Penn, Sherk decided to keep it standing and strike with his opponent, and just like in that fight, it did not work out in his favor again.
