Showtime Rumored April 11 Card:
Frank Shamrock vs Nick Diaz (170lbs?)
Benji Radach vs Scott Smith
Josh Thomson vs TBA
Interesting to point out that Josh Thomson has also wanted to fight Frank Shamrock for quite some time. Via MMAJunkie:
"I'm looking for big fights," Thomson said. "I'd love to fight Ralph Gracie. I'd love to fight Frank Shamrock. I'd like to fight Eddie Alvarez. I'd like to fight those guys. And those to me, and (Joachin) Hansen, they warrant coming in off the street to get an automatic title shot -- or like a union fight or superfight."
I guess Josh Thomson's dreams came true. He now has the opportunity to fight Melendez, Masdival, Noons, Ishida, Shamrock, Diaz, Riggs, and Alvarez. These possible matchups set up Strikeforce's WW and LW classes with some very good and interesting bouts to look forward to in the future.
As for MW, most fans would want to see any combination of Frank Shamrock, Cung Le (SF MW Champion), Frank Trigg, Santiago (WVR MW Champion) and Robbie Lawler (EliteXC MW Champion).
These are good fights for Strikeforce to build up for their future shows on Showtime and CBS.
