Although she has seen mixed martial arts events for many years on television and live, and covered live professional sporting events like horse racing, the June 16 Strikeforce card in Los Angeles was the first time she has ever covered a live mixed martial arts show. We thus discussed how she became interested in mixed martial arts, and her impressions of this event as a journalist and the event itself.
It was, as she explained in this lively discussion, a positive experience overall, and one she hopes to repeat.
We also commented on some of the good and bad aspects of this card, which had four televised fights on Showtime, plus two non-televised fights. In the main event, fighting at a catch weight of 195 pounds, former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Renato "Babalu" Sobral won a close, unanimous three-round decision over former Strikeforce middleweight champion Robbie Lawler.
