link Fighting in enemy territory is nothing new for Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante after years of fighting in Japan, but now the American Top Team fighter will step into a similar situation as he faces Josh Thomson in his hometown of San Jose on Oct 9 as the two lightweights are set to square off in Strikeforce.

The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Wednesday by Cavalcante's manager, Alex Davis, who spoke with MMAWeekly Radio about the match-up.

Thomson will probably do the same thing Kawajiri did to JZ.

Take him down and hold him there.

I see good things out of this fight. Should be a barn burner.

It's Strikeforce. If JZ wins, Thomson gets a title shot.

Nice to see this fight happen.

Lets just hope Thompson stands with JZ, but I highly doubt he will.
