Today Strikeforce sent out an “insiders” email for the upcoming Strikeforce event in San Jose, California on October 9th. The email talks about Nick Diaz and Sarah Kaufman, the Strikeforce men’s and women’s Welterweight World Champions returning to the cage. Kaufman will face off against Marloes Coenen, while Diaz will face an opponent to be named in the coming days.
Look closely at the name of the event listed under “upcoming events” (pictured). Props to Josh Nason, Featured Columnist for Bleacher Report for noticing it, while other (including me) over looked it.
So what to you make of this?
[Update] It appears that after the above mistake got back to Strikeforce it forced their hand. According to MMA Fighting the fight is now “official” and the headline the October 9th show in San Jose.
With a fight card with two title fights already booked, plus middleweights Matt Lindland vs. Luke Rockhold the card is shaping up nicely. Throw in a rumored fight between former lightweight champ Josh Thomson against Gesias ”JZ” Cavalcante and the card is looking solid.
Stay tuned for more information on this fight card.
