Default Strikeforce **Spoiler**

Strikeforce Welterweight Championship
Nick Diaz vs. Paul Daley
Round 1
Daley cracks Diaz with a leg kick as the fight begins. It's 30 seconds into the ffight until they're throwing haymakers, and Daley lands a crushing hook that puts Diaz on his knees. Daley savagely flurries, smashing Diaz, but the incredibly tough champion fights back to his feet. Daley gets the Thai clinch, while Diaz drills him to the body. Rolling hooks by Diaz land, rocking Daley to his heels, and prompting "Semtex" to shoot for a takedown. Diaz is taken down, but works his way back to his feet, and punches Daley to the head and body. Tremendous action as the welterweights wing hooks at one another. Diaz steps forward, and Daley crushes him two knees. Daley explodes with another vicious left hook that puts Diaz on his face, and Daley follows up, but incredibly, Diaz recovers, getting to guard with a minute to fight. Daley stands away, Diaz stands back up. Massive left hook to the body by Diaz brutally hurts Daley, and now the champion comes roaring back. Daley hits the mat, and Diaz follows up with punishment on the folded Brit. Referee "Big" John McCarthy is forced to step in to save Daley at 4:57 of the first round. Absolutely incredibly fight. Nick Diaz retains his Strikeforce welterweight title.

Gilbert Melendez vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri
Round 1
The lightweights come out winging, and a Melendez right hook drops Kawajiri to his knee. "El Nino" follows with a volley of knees, and keeps the pressure on, ducking under Kawajiri's attacks and countering. A head kick from the "Crusher" wobbles Melendez, but he responds, crushing Kawajiri with a salvo of knees and punches. Kawajiri hits the mat, and Melendez locks up back control, sinking his hooks and threatening to choke. The rugged Japanese fighter struggles free, but Melendez stays on him. Melendez punches under Kawajiri's arm, railing him with uppercuts. It's all Melendez thus far. Kawajiri pumps his jab, but Melendez ducks under and counters with one-twos. Melendez smashes Kawajiri with an uppercut, and follows up with punches, forcing him to his back.Melendez gets on top, and hits the kill switch: "El Nino" delivers a vicious torrent of elbows that leave Kawajiri destroyed on the canvas. Referee Cecil Peoples resues "The Crusher" at 3:14 of the first round. Incredible performance by Melendez.

I love that Diaz can stand and trade like that, and when his opponent takes him down, he just subs 'em. Cyborg anyone?

Diaz is serious business.

Peeps can make fun of SF all they want, but how often do you see the champ and the contender go like that in the UFC.

I can't believe that Jardine fight was a majority draw.

From what the commentators said I was expecting more power from Daley! Diaz was more technical than Daley so he landed alot more!
