    WHAT:           The fighters will participate in a final press conference just two days before the STRIKEFORCE World Championship Doubleheader on Saturday, Jan. 29, at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., live on SHOWTIME® (10 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast).

    STRIKEFORCE World Welterweight Champ Nick Diaz (23-7, 1 NC) will make his second title defense when he faces Brazilian Evangelista Cyborg (18-13) in the main event.  Diaz, of Stockton, Calif. has been unstoppable of late, winning his last eight fights.  

    STRIKEFORCE World Middleweight Champ "Jacare" Souza (13-2, 1 NC) will put his belt on the line for the first time against KO artist "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler (18-6, 1 NC) in the co-feature of a stacked card.

    Herschel Walker (1-0) will return to the cage to face Scott Carson (4-1) in a heavyweight bout. The matchup was originally scheduled for Dec. 4, but was postponed after Walker sustained a cut during a training session.  Walker, who won the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner, won his MMA debut with a third-round TKO last January.  

    Undefeated Roger Gracie (3-0), the latest prospect from MMA's first family, will battle former South African national wrestling champion Trevor Prangley (23-6-1) at light heavyweight (205 pounds).
