    In the main event of a world championship doubleheader, STRIKEFORCE Welterweight Champ Nick Diaz will defend his 170-pound crown against the last man to beat him – KJ Noons – in a grudge rematch that has been brewing since their first fight ended in bloody controversy nearly three years ago.   Both Diaz (22-7), of Stockton, Calif., and Noons (9-1), of San Diego, Calif., have gone undefeated since their last meeting and bad blood between the brash fighters has only increased.

    In the world championship co-feature, undefeated Sarah Kaufman (12-0) will defend her STRIKEFORCE Women’s Welterweight (135 pounds) World Title against No. 1 contender Marloes Coenen (17-4). 

    Also on the card, former STRIKEFORCE champion and San Jose native Josh Thomson (17-3) will meet the world-ranked Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante (15-3-1), of Brazil, in a fight that could determine the next challenger for STRIKEFORCE World Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez. Another featured fight will pit top prospects Tyron Woodley (8-0) and Andre Galvao (5-1) in a welterweight fight.
