There was some exciting action at last night’s Strikeforce, as well as some interesting cross-promotional moments with the UFC (Dana and Lorenzo were in the crowd, and Gilbert Melendez wasted no time calling for a title unification bout). Here are the main card results:
Shinya Aoki def. Lyle Beerbohm via submission (neck crank), round one
Gegard Mousasi draws Keith Jardine (majority draw), point deducted off Mousasi in first round for illegal upkick
Gilbert Melendez def. Tatsuya Kawajiri via TKO (elbows), round one, retains Strikeforce lightweight championship
Nick Diaz def. Paul Daley via TKO (punches), round one, retains Strikeforce welterweight championship
It’s finally time — Guro Dan Inosanto will be at Kombat Arts tomorrow and Sunday for a two-day seminar! Please remember that all weekend classes except for Konditioning on Saturday are cancelled as a result.
Although the seminar starts promptly at 9:30 a.m. please show up at least half an hour early to fill out forms and do a proper warm up. As a reminder, no video or audio recording will be allowed. Kali sticks, training blades and other equipment will be available for sale.
For this last Countdown installment, I thought it would be fun to take a look at Guro Dan’s appearances in popular culture. Guro Dan never dove into Hollywood with the same earnest as his friend Bruce Lee had, which makes it even more of a pleasant surprise whenever he does pop up on screen or in a film’s credits. Here’s the best of Guro Dan at the movies.
