The first fight on the main at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson is Tarec Saffiedine vs. Scott Smith. This is a welterweight bout, meaning 170 pounds. The fighters have never faced the other and both enter this bout coming in off of a loss. Saffiedine lost to fellow main card competitor Tyron Woodley back in January while Smith was recently knocked out cold by Paul Daley in December at Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu.
The fights kick off on Showtime tonight at 10 p.m. ET. For more ways on how to watch, check out our guideline.
In the video, I explain that Saffiedine has more skills and blends more divergent elements of the offensive game than Smith. Smith's also taken a worrisome amount of damage in his career, losing three of his last four. Saffiedine, though, stands a little too tall in the pocket, something Smith could exploit.
