Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Vera vs Pena set for May 21 Strikeforce show, Toughill not quitting
Strikeforce announced today that Kerry Vera vs Julianna Pena is set for the May 21 Strikeforce Challengers show in Portland. It is contracted for 135lb. Most fans know that Kerry Vera is the wife of UFC veteran Beandon Vera and they both train at Alliance MMA in Chula Vista, CA. Kerry's MMA record is 2-0 and her most recent win was over Kim Couture at the Nov. 20 Strikeforce Challengers show. She has extensive Muay Thai experience but has yet to be tested on the ground. Julianna Pena is known as The Venezuelan Vixen. She is from Spokane, WA and trains at SIK Jitsu. Her record is 2-0 and her last win was over Stephanie Webber on the Dec. 5 CageSport MMA show in Spokane. She's 20 years old and very attractive. I saw a pic on her MySpace. In other news, Erin Toughill announced on her Facebook today that she is remaining with Strikeforce but will not fight Cris Cyborg on the June 16 show at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. I don't know who the opponent will be. There ain't much to choose from. As I reported previously, the problem was mostly miscommunication with Strikeforce and it's not the first time. Erin had similar issues last year and Erin switched agents. Strikeforce fighter liason Shannon Knapp was able to smooth things over and the drama is over. Coker, give Shannon a raise.
