Anyone whose eyes fall on Strikeforce’s always-smiling ring girls may very well forget how things are about to get gruesome in San Jose, California.
Weigh-ins for the event took place this Friday and the fighters are set to enter the cage on Saturday. On the main card, Cesar Gracie black belt Nick Diaz will look to settle the score with KJ Noons in a welterweight title fight. In other heavily-anticipated matchups, Sarah Kaufman and Marloes Coenen will also fight for their respective title, Gesias Cavalcante finally gets a fight in the USA against Josh Thomson, and André Galvão will look to add another win in the organization to his record, against the undefeated Tyron Woodley.
