Joe Riggs at Strikeforce in Tacoma Wa this Weekend
Joe Riggs is the newest and I would say one of the the most valid fighters on the card. Link for all fights this weekend http://www.strikeforceusa.net/matchups.asp tickets $35, 75, 150, 300. I am thinking $35 and make my way down out of the nosebleeds, Tacoma Dome seems like a crappy venue for MMA, I like the smaller, steeper arenas like Seattle Key Arena or Everett Event center

Masvidal likely to fight Melendez
ProElite.com (SamCaplan.ProElite.com) has confirmed through Strikeforce Vice President Mike Afromowitz that BodogFIGHT lightweight competitor Jorge Masvidal is under consideration to receive a shot at the promotion’s lightweight title currently held by Gilbert Melendez on March 29 in San Jose at the HP Pavilion. I have been hearing rumors that this fight is taking place on the March 29th card for the last few days, and now that this is announced I am fairly certain it will.

Nam Phan Interview...Strikeforce plans, turning down the UFC, etc.
Just did a story and interview with Nam. He talks about his upcoming bouts with Strikeforce and Gladiator Challenge...why he turned down the UFC and what he thinks of Roger Huerta, his professional boxing career. Feel free to check it out and leave any comments. We're lagging on redesigning the site so bare with the simplicity for now. Thanks

Jeff Joslin, Wander Braga and Luke Stewart Interviews...
I posted interviews with all fighters here Did this interview with Joslin a couple weeks ago. Very underrated fighter and it's great he's getting another chance. Anyone who hasn't seen his fight with Jon Fitch needs to check out what he was able to do to Fitch in controversial loss. Thought he more than held his own against Koscheck as well. Wander Braga was supposed to be in the UFC a few times against Pellegrino. He's got some legal issues preventing him from fighting at the moment but could be in this year. 16-0 but he hasn't fought in 3 years. Not sure how many people here know who Luke Stewart is but he is somebody to watch at 170. He is fighting for Strikeforce and has finished every single opponent. Biggest name opponent is Von Flue, but he should get bigger fights soon and is on the undercard for the March 29 event. Sick Jiu-Jitsu, black belt under Ralph Gracie.
