Grudge Rematch Lives Up To The Hype … And More!
Strikeforce returned home to the HP Pavilion tonight, and once again the San Jose audience was witness to one of the best MMA shows of the entire year!
In the main event, Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz retained his championship in a 5 Round unanimous decision over KJ Noons, 48-47, 49-47, 49-46. Early reports from the bloody brawl have Noons suffering both a broken jaw and a broken left hand.

In other huge news, Josh Thomson scored a controversial 3 Round unanimous decision over Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante, 29-28, 29-28, 30-27. On THE HEYMAN HUSTLE TWITTER PAGE, our own Hustler De Tuti Hustlers Paul Heyman made the following comments:
I thought Thomson vs Cavalcante was a great fight, but … I would have given the victory to Cavalcante by a point. Very close, and you can’t say Thomson didn’t deserve it. Perhaps even a draw would have been appropriate. I just thought Cavalcante dominated Thomson more than the other way around. BUT … I am far from the foremost expert on judging, and I am only offering one person’s opinion. I have made a career out of offering an opinion, but I’m not a judge and I’m not qualified to be one. So… I think it was an epic fight, and I’d love to see a Thomson and Cavalcante rematch!
