WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com with his thoughts about Saturday night’s Strikeforce mixed martial arts on Showtime, which I was lucky enough to attend in person. The event featured the Strikeforce debut of TNA wrestler Bobby Lashley. Here’s what JR said about:
Herschel Walker’s MMA Debut: “Herschel Walker won his debut in a 3rd round stoppage against the perfect opponent for the 47 year old who looks more like a 27 year old. Strike Force got ESPN coverage off #34 who will likely be exploited on Strike Force’s next CBS broadcast.
Cyborg’s Victory: “Cris Cyborg looks to be an imposing cross between Chyna of years ago and Beth Phoenix as she dominated her opponent in winning in the 3rd round and then donned pink and black “Hitman” fight gear complete w/ shades. Women’s MMA can be built in time to be big.”
Bobby Lashley’s Victory: “Bobby Lashley proved to me that his immediate, full time future is in MMA. Bobby won in a 1st round stoppage of a lackluster fight because of an unprepared fighter who took the fight on a week’s notice. Lashley will get much better but is a year maybe more away from fighting Fedor or so it seems.”
