The first Strikeforce event of the year will be this Saturday January 30th in Miami, Florida. The event will feature two title fights plus three Strikeforce debuts all on the main card. Nick Diaz we finally get back into the cage after a long absence and will get back down to fight in the Welterweight division against Strikeforce newcomer Marius Zaromskis for the vacant Welterweight title. Also on the card the Cybog Santos making her first defence of her 145lbs. title against Marloes Coenen. The night will start out with two fights featuring highly anticipated debuts of Bobby Lashley and Herschel Walker.

I will only be predicting the main card plus one undercard fight for this event for various reasons. Three events into the 2010 year I’m 19-11-1 on my predictions, not bad but it could be better. With this event and next weeks UFC 109 I will look to get on a run and  past double digits over .500. Here are my Strikefore: Miami Picks:

Main event:
170 lbs.:  Marius Zaromskisover Nick Diaz by 2nd rd. TKO

Main card (Televised):
145 lbs.: Cristiane Santos over Marloes Coenen by 1st rd. TKO

205 lbs.: Herschel Walker over Greg Nagy by Unanimous Decision
