MMA Review for Friday, February 6

Georges St. PierreHere’s a weekly rundown of MMA content from Ben Goldstein of CagePotato.com:

UFC 94 produced a record eight fights that went to decision, a one-sided thrashing in the main event, and a greasing scandal that could taint the accomplishments of welterweight king Georges St. Pierre. If you missed it, check out this video of St. Pierre/Penn fight, and this collection of photos from the event.

– Strikeforce picked over the carcass of Pro Elite, and will be broadcasting live MMA events featuring former EliteXC fighters on Showtime beginning in April.

– Former UFC heavyweight champ Andrei Arlovski is leaving MMA for boxing.

– What recession? Three of the UFC’s four best-selling pay-per-view events of all time have taken place in the last three months.

– The moronic MySpace ramblings of former Ultimate Fighter castmember Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver have gotten him fired from yet another fight promotion.
