MMAWeekly.com sources on Wednesday confirmed that Jay Hieron has signed a new multi-fight contract with Strikeforce that will put him on the promotion’s Aug. 15 event “Carano vs. Cyborg.” He will face Nick Diaz for the first ever Strikeforce welterweight championship.

Diaz via whatever, i don't think this will be very even.

I think this is going to be diaz's biggest test since he fought gomi I dont see him walking through Hieron like he has been with his last few opponents.

Should be a good scrap. I can't wait for this card. As much as I wanted to see Riggs/Diaz II, I think that this is a much more relevant fight for the weight class. Riggs has kinda stagnated, while Diaz is on the rise and just getting better.

Thats a good matchup. This card on August 15th is lookin real good right now. This seems like a fun and interesting matchup to watch but I think Diaz is just too talented for Hieron.

I think it's gonna be a good fight, both have great striking, I think Diaz is on another level as a fighter though, and will probably TKO Hieron in the second or third.

This will be a much more competitive match-up than what I assumed Diaz/Riggs was going to be.

How about Diaz/Cyborg and Hieron/Carano though, since they're all interchangeable due to all being the same weight.
