Scott Smith left an enduring impression with the crowd in
San Jose, Calif. and those watching his Strikeforce debut on HDNet on Friday
night. It wasn’t surprising that his fight went the way it did. He and Terry
Martin are both UFC vets with a penchant for the highlight reel knockout. It
was Smith, however, that landed the crushing blow on Friday night, putting
Martin’s lights out 24 seconds into the opening round.


Another UFV veteran, Renato "Babalu" Sobral finally
made his Strikeforce debut, as well. He was also successful, opening up a deep
cut over the right eye of Bobby Southworth for a TKO by way of Doctor’s
Stoppage after the first round. The win made Sobral the new Strikeforce light
heavyweight champion.


In other action, Duane Ludwig bested Yves Edwards, Joe Riggs
got back on track, and Kim Couture captured her first professional MMA win.
