Strikeforce 37 will take place December 17th on Showtime. It is headlined by the Strikeforce lightweight title fight between Gilbert Melendez who is considered by most in the top 3 lightweights in the world and Jorge Masvidal, who is coming off of a huge win over KJ Noons. 


Melendez/Masvidal – Melendez(Unanimous Decision)

Masvidal will grind it out to a decison, but in the end Melendez will get the nod. 


Cyborg/Yamanaka – Cyborg(TKO in 1st Round)

At this point, Cyborg is by far the best female 145er in the world. 


Moussai/St.Preux – Moussai(Unanimous Decison)

I expect Moussai to pick St.Preux apart, this will be Ovince first real big fight in his MMA Career. 


Noons/Evangelista – Noons(TKO in 3rd Round)

  Noons is one of the very best boxers in MMA, he can give lots of people fits at 155.
