Strikeforce is trying to hang in there with the top dog in MMA, the UFC, but this Saturday's fight card might not be what Strikeforce needs to gain on the UFC as far as fan fare. There are not many top names, but fortunately for Strikeforce, the main event in not just and MMA match up. This fight is going to be an all out chingasos throwing festival.
The main event, Diaz vs Noons is a rematch. The last time these two exchanged chingasos in the cage, it was a war until the stoppage. There was even a melee that occurred at the end of the fight do to the controversial stoppage. There has been so much tension and trash talking leading up to the rematch that Strikeforce has added extra security. For the sake of the sport, I hope they keep the chingasos to within the actual sanctioned fight this time.
