Maximo Blanco is ready to make his Strikeforce debut and he’ll get the chance to face a former champion.

Lol, beat me to it by seconds.

This is a pretty big step up in competition for Blanco. I think Thomson should be able to win, but I wouldn't bet on it. This fight will be epic though. That much is certain.

If Thompson can avoid the first round blitz, he should be able to take the fight and possibly finish with a submission.

People dont know Blanco has an awesome wrestling background, he will easily keep this on the feet where he's going to merc Josh Thomson for a stoppage or a 30-26 type decision. Surprised they didnt just sign him into the UFC, bad move, he deserves his shot over a lot of the garbage talent from TUF in the last few years.
