HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. – The Strikeforce welterweight title could soon be wrapped around a new waist.

Following Nick Diaz's recent move to the UFC and his vacating of the title, two likely title challengers emerged from Saturday's "Strikeforce and M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Henderson" event.

Big wins from Tyron Woodley (9-0 MMA, 7-0 SF) and Tarec Saffiedine (11-3 MMA, 2-1 SF) likely will put their title fight in motion, according to Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker.

Ummm, didn't they just fight each other? Yeah, I am pretty sure that before this weekend, they were each other's last fight. So they go from fighting on the Challengers series as prospects, then one fight later they are in a title fight together?

Good for them, lol. Talk about being put on the fast track!

It's definitely a strange idea but it's also their only real option for a legitimate title fight.

I'm surprised to hear this.I had heard The winner of Woodley/Daley would probably get the winner of Cyborg/Mein.

dumb, dont want to see it. Though strikeforce is entertaining it seems like they use the same ten fighters on all there cards but they match them up different, but this time the didnt even bother to switch it up.

I mean that's what happens when you have a small roster and don't add much guys.

If this is the match for the title strikeforce really has no depth
They just fought. They should just go ahead and give woodley the belt
