It took several years and three different weight classes, but the hard work that Nick Diaz put in finally paid off as the brash Cesar Gracie student knocked out Dream champion, Marius Zaromskis, to claim the vacant Strikeforce welterweight title.

It looked like the slugfest that most expected out of Robbie Lawler and Melvin Manhoef, but it was Diaz and Zaromskis who came out throwing heavy duty shots as soon as the bell rang.

It is good to finally see him shine. Diaz needs to finish destroying whatever Strikeforce digs up...then finally get his ass back to the UFC. Diaz vs. GSP would be quite the match. Not sure GSP would fare so well. In either realm (standup or ground) I think Diaz has what it takes to finish GSP.
