Strikeforce Diaz Cyborg

Morgennacht staan er twee titelgevechten op het programma bij Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg. Nick Diaz zal zijn Strikeforce Welterweight titel verdedigen tegen Evangelista Santos, oftewel Cyborg en Ronaldo Souza zal zijn Strikeforce Middleweight titel verdedigen tegen Robbie Lawler. Andere bekende atleten op deze kaart zijn Herschel Walker en Roger Gracie.

Vooral het gevecht tussen Ronaldo Souza en Robbie Lawler zal spannend worden. Souza is een van de beste BJJ vechters van de wereld en Robbie Lawler staat juist bekend om sterke striking. Wie dit gevecht zal winnen is dus erg moeilijk te voorspellen. Souza via een submisson of Lawler via de KO. Ik ben erg benieuwd.
