With Strikeforce's first event of 2010 a little more than three weeks away, the fight card is nearing completion.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with promotion officials the addition of three preliminary card matchups to the Jan. 30 "Strikeforce: Miami" event.

And with Showtime committed to broadcasting five main-card matchups, a pair of high-profile fighters will likely be left off of the evening's premium cable broadcast – though it will not necessarily go unseen.

The three official additions to the card include Pablo Alfonso vs. Marcos da Matta, Sabah Homasi vs. John Kelly, and David Gomez vs. Craig Oxley. Strikeforce is expected to add at least one more preliminary matchup to the card, bringing the total guaranteed bouts to a minimum of 10.

Joe Riggs vs Jay Hieron is on the under card while Herschel Walker is on the Main card....absurd.

Hieron and Riggs are getting hosed. Walker is a pure joke and will fight a nobody for sure. Lashley, if not given a decent opponent, is also a joke on the main card. the main event alone is still enough to get me to watch.

MMA is changing more for the money. Riggs and Hieron are respected veterans coming off wins and they deserve to be on the main card. Lashley and Walker are inexperienced but on the main card for PPV buys and $$$$$.

Agreed . I really hope this gets shown, should be a great fight, sets up number one contender for the winner of Diaz/Zaromskis , possible set the tone for Diaz vs Riggs 2 .
