Hugh Hefner strolled out in his pajamas tonight to take in the fights being held on his lawn at the Playboy Mansion.  This was a great night of action.  Big props to Sherdog and Strikeforce for teaming up and streaming this event live on Sherdog.com.  This is something Sherdog has done before with other shows and from what they are saying, we can look forward to more live stream feeds in the future.  There was not a single technical glitch in the action and that is a big accomplishment when talking about live internet video.
