————————————————————————————————–

Strikeforce officials have confirmed that the two remaining heavyweight tournament quarterfinals have been pushed back to early summer, but will still have an event for April 9th. The rumors of a welterweight championship bout between Nick Diaz and Paul Daley has been officially booked. Strikeforce: Diaz vs Daley will be held at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California. A lightweight title fight between Gilbert Melendez and Tatsuya Kawajiri has also been signed for the co-main event.

Nick Diaz is quickly rising up the pound-for-pound rankings riding a nine-fight win streak, the longest of his career. He has competed in both the welterweight and middleweight division, disposing of everyone in his way. Diaz defeated Mariusz Zaromskis in January of 2010 with a first round TKO stoppage to become Strikeforce’s first welterweight champion. He has since defended the belt twice against KJ Noons and most recently Evangelista ‘Cyborg’ Santos.

Feared striker, Paul Daley gambled his title opportunity by taking a fight outside the promotion against Yuya Shirai at BAMMA 5 in the United Kingdom. Fortunately for both Daley and Strikeforce, he knocked out the current DEEP welterweight champion in less than two minutes. It was Daley’s fourth consecutive victory since being released by the UFC for sucker-punching Josh Koscheck after the final bell in May of last year.
