With the announcement of what will be the 6 prelim fights today, Strikeforce has now virtually finalized it's April 11 card. Raul Castillo vs. Brandon Michaels completes the prelim portion of the card, and now the only thing left to be determined is an opponent for Brett Rogers with Joe Riggs vs. Phil Baroni likely not happening.

Not happening. Randleman won't debut for SF until at least May.

Edit: There are now reports that the opponent will be Ron Humphries (5-0). He fought on that BET show "Iron Ring".

God that show was so worthless. It was cool hearing Krazy Horse threaten TI , but id like to see someone from that group succeed so maybe that step backwards would be worth it. Thanks for the early rumor.

The fight actually is pretty much confirmed, latest word is it just needs CSAC approval. Might be a mild sleeper, 4 of Humphries' 5 wins are by KO (the other a TKO). So it could be quite the slugfest.

I think rogers will put Humphries away early. He looked great in EXC and should be able to make a splash in SF

I totally agree. I think Strikeforce is a great promotion.
I think we could possibly se Thomson vs Noons next year, as soon as Noons decides to take a break from boxing.
and Scott Coker has mentioned a potential bout of Cung Le and Lawler, which would be awesome.
Strikeforce never has had a welterwelt champion, but Jake Shields certainly is a good canidate.
Unfortunately, I doubt the Antonio Silva vs Overeem will happen, because Silva has is like indefinitely suspended from fighting in the US

Not shaping up to be a bad card at all.
