The show just got a bit more entertaining-Shonie Carter has arrived. He'll make his debut for the promotion on this card against Luke Stewart.

A late change to the card, Shonie Carter is now off due to injury (shattered knuckle). He says he could've still thought but was skeptical about the CSAC letting him. He was to have faced Luke Stewart. Joe "Diesel" Riggs is the replacement.

Does anyone know anything about any of the fighters making debuts in this event?

specifically, Davis Martin, Genaro Strangis and Raymond Daniels?

I found a few videos of Daniels sparring and competing in Tae Kwow Do but nothing on the other 2, Other than Strangis is a BJJ instructor for a Kickboxing school called Condition and Competition.

I dont want to make predictions based on nothing

I looked them up on Sherdog (checking for profile pics for first post) and they're not even in their database, so I'm assuming these are their MMA debuts as well as debuts for Strikeforce. The fights aren't yet official, just rumored at this point.

I couldn't find anything for him so I'm going to assume it's possibly the Dave Martin that Gillespie beat by UD on the Strikeforce card in February. That Dave Martin is 0-1 with the Gillespie fight being his only fight.

Here's a thread on Sherdog with multiple videos. After watching them I do remember him being in the World Combat League.

WCL? THE WCL? Why do I sense Chuck Norris is going to be marking out over this? (He's the brains behind WCL, which comes off to me a lot like kickboxing)

Yep im pretty sure its the same guy so the mods need to link him up. Any reason for the rematch I wonder?

This kickboxer making his mma debut looks to be given a nice present, a guy with a losing record coming of KO losses, i know what to pick there thank you!

Joe Riggs is now off. Disclosed that he took a banned substance. There was talk of Drew Fickett being brought in as a replacement but that hasn't been confirmed.
