Poppies "The Tachi Kid" Martinez (16-5), a former World Extreme Cagefighting fighter and Palace Fighting Championships title-holder, will further bolster Strikeforce's quickly filling lightweight division.

Christian Printup, founder and president of the successful PFC organization, today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) Martinez will make his Strikeforce debut at the organization's Aug. 15 event in San Jose, Calif.

An opponent will soon be signed for Martinez, who will compete on the night's preliminary card.

Martinez enters Strikeforce with three wins in his past four fights (all in PFC) and seven in his past nine; only one victory went to a decision. He launched his career in 2003 with the WEC, where he went 8-2 before a move to PFC in 2007.
