SAN JOSE, Calif. – A pair of title fights will headline "Strikeforce: Miami" next month when Nick Diaz (20-7 MMA, 2-0 SF) takes on DREAM welterweight champion Marius Zaromskis (13-3 MMA, 0-0 SF) for the first-ever Strikeforce welterweight title and Cris "Cyborg" Santos (8-1 MMA, 2-0 SF) puts her women's featherweight title on the line against Marloes Coenen (17-3 MMA, 1-0 SF).

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was informed of both of the rumored matchups in the post-fight press conference for Saturday's "Strikeforce: Evolution" event.

The way Diaz carries his hands we might see the streak of head kicks continue!

Diaz will throw punches in bunches and then sub him. Late round 1.

Glad to see some non-Nick Diaz nuthuggery around here. This will be a great fight, but I see it going to decision either way.

Nick Diaz is a far sterner test than anybody Zaromskis has KOed with a head kick. Mach was a very impressive victory, but there's no doubt that he's a shell of his former self. Zaromskis is an impressive young fighter, but he hasn't beat anybody to convince me that he's ready for Diaz.

Everyone can be KO'd, accumulative punishment catches up with everyone, Mark Hunt got KO'd so that eliminated any notion of a human on earth that can't be KO'd.
