Thomson Back at the Strikeforce, to Face Cavalcante
The lightweight champion of Strikeforce a couple of years ago, Josh Thomson, is back on a brawl on October 9 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
“I want to fight all the best lightweights. Right now Strikeforce has a bunch of top fighters at 155 pounds. There’s always going to be talk about a third fight with Gilbert (Melendez), but that will come when the time is right.”
Says Thomson, who took the title from a victory over Gilbert Melendez in 2008. But their second matchup submitted victory to the former. But the lightweight is confident in the steps he is taking these days. He looks forward to the “plenty of great fights” being presented to him–including this coming clash with Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante.
Their card was announced official by the promotion last Friday. This October’s Strikeforce will broadcast live on Showtime at 10 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast.View Article Source »
