How can you say "3 solid matches" when there are exactly zero matches actually made?

hey maybe they'll give Southworth his wish to fight Babalu.

That way Babalu will finally get a strap around his waist.

IF they do that, wouldn't be a solid matchup at all.

The event has now been confirmed, but the date has been changed to 9/20. No fights announced yet but Thomson is expected to defend the LW Title along with the other rumored names. TV-wise, HDNet could carry the main card but there are some NBC rumors. It would have competition though, EliteXC is scheduled to run that same night on Showtime.

Joe Riggs vs. Kazuo Misaki is now official for this show. Should be a great fight with Diesel taking on one of the top PRIDE Middleweights.

If he fights, he seems to have been dropped from the rumored cards. Cyborg also appears off, that likely due to him scheduled to be on the DREAM card 3 days after this event.

Edit: Babalu is now confirmed for the card. He'll face Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Bobby Southworth for the title.

talked to Josh Thomson last night and he is not on this card anymore...

he said he thinks Masvidal is fighting Ishida, but he is not 100% on that...and he will face the winner in Oct/Nov.

Actually, Thomson IS on the card. He'll be facing Ashe Bowman in a NON-TITLE match. SF VP Mike Aframowitz confirmed this to Mania.

Article

Bowman has a 6-4 career mark, but is 6-1 since starting 0-3. He mainly has fought for Ken Shamrock Promotions over the last 18 months, where he is 5-0. He really hasn't fought anyone who rings a bell to most MMA fans.

Just put up results from weigh-ins, they were late getting started. They also added a few more fights.
Don't forget, sherdog.com airs the main card and possibly 2 prelims live tonight at 10:30, and I believe it also will air in Canada on The Score.
