"Strikeforce: Barnett vs. Cormier" Post Fight Interviews (Video) | MMA NEWS


“Strikeforce: Barnett vs. Cormier” took place yesterday evening from San Jose’s HP Pavilion.

In the main event Daniel Cormier was able to coast his way to a unanimous decision victory over highly touted veteran Josh Barnett.

In the night’s co-feature champion Gilbert Melendez squeaked by Josh Thomson in a hard fought five-round war that many think should have been scored in favor of the challenger.

  1. James says:

    I didn’t see the fight but based on their faces I’d say it looks like Thompson put a beatdown on Gil.

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      I thought it was kind of boring. I haven’t seen all of Gils fights but he seems like a decision fighter to me.

      DC vs Barnett was just a good showcase of DC’s skills for when he makes the jump to the UFC.

      • James says:

        Anytime I see 48-47 I pretty much assume someone got the shaft. They did hype Gil a bit too much imo. Cormier does strike me as the real deal though. Him and Barnett both should be in the UFC. I’m sure Dana can forgive and forget for the right price.

  2. Anthony says:

    Gilber: I’m ready for whoever….. As long as it’s not Josh Thompson…

  3. McCombski says:

    Tompson got robbed!!! gil got 2nd and 3rd round but thompson got 1st, 4th, and 5th for sure. He picked him apart on his feet and had sub attemps and takedowns. Josh beat Gil in almost every catorgory for the compu punch… it was bs! Josh looked amazing his foot work and boxing was some of the best ive sceen from anyone in the ufc or strikeforce. Gil knows he lost thats why he dont wanna fight him again. I lost a lot of respect for Gil in this fight and gained a lot for Josh.
