Strikeforce next Friday!

I am pretty excited about the upcoming Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Baroni card next Friday. The first Strikeforce had a great atmosphere, and was a bit of a historical moment for mma, but the card itself was somewhat lacking card. This one has quite a few decent match-ups - and the main event promises to be heated, judging by the kind words Shamrock and Baroni have been exchanging:
"Phil doesn't get this, but I'm an artist," said Shamrock. "I study the art of fighting."
"Frank's an artist?" Baroni grunted. "After I knock you out, I'll buy you a box of crayons and you can be an artist. This isn't an exhibition. I'm a f___ing fighter. There's gonna be a fight. I'm gonna pound your f___ing head off. I don't know what a martial artist is. I don't get this cat. You're in for a rude awakening."

Chris Cariaso, from Fight and Fitness, is fighting on the prelims, against a guy from Cung Le's gym; I had my ticket already, and now I am motivated to watch the entire event, prelims included!
