Strikeforce has announced that Josh Thomson's first Lightweight Title defense, scheduled for the 11/21 event, will be against Yves Edwards. "The Busiest FIghter In MMA" is the only fighter to ever beat Thomson by KO/TKO, scoring a first-round KO against him at UFC 49.

Good match up for JT, Yves is always dangerous

Is there a title that Yves hasn't fought for?

Hopefully it's as good as their matchup in the UFC, though I don't see Yves landing that jumping head kick again.

nice way for yves to erase some bad memories and maybe even find himself back in the top 10

he would need about 3 victories over people at Thompson's level and above, he isn't making the top 10 anytime soon imo.
