Strikeforce today added some depth to its lightweight division with the signing of Brazilian jiu-jitsu prodigy and MMA standout Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro (20-3).

Ribeiro, now based in New York City, has recently competed for the Japanese-based DREAM organization and has bounced between the U.S., U.K. and Japan throughout his career his eight-year career.

Def a solid pick up for Strikeforce. They need to worry more about signing fighters like this instead of trying to razzle the UFC by putting on their own Vera vs. Couture matchup. I still find that funny as ****.
