- Nick Diaz will go up and down in weight, fight out of his weight class but also defend the welterweight title.

wow....fuck you strikeforce. get your act together and strip him of the title.  how is the opponent tbd?  there is 1 opponent for him to face and his name is fedor.   why is M-1 not pressing this issue harder?   fedor is the best fighter in the world.  why has this championship bout not been lined up yet?

 Coker has said all along he's building Fedor up to a fight for the title in his 3rd fight which will be the last on his contract. They want to get Fedor all the pub they can before his fight with Overeem.

Considering Cris just fought on Jan 30th, it would be under 3 months between the 2 fights if she were to fight in April...

 I really can't see why Erin and Cris can't fight in Apr on the CBS card.  That will be a 6 month layoff for Cris and at least a year with no fight for Erin what's the hold up?  SF better be planning to have a lot of 135lbs fighter until late summer.  Who is Gina going to fight when she comes back this summer?

With Scott Coker, I believe it when I see it officially announced.They have been saying Overeem will fight for them for over a year. Still not happening. They said the female tournaments would start last year. Then early this year. Now the summer.The guy isn't a good source for his own company...

5'10? More like a 6 foot amazon from the lost tribes of South America.

How will Erin dictate the fight? I just watched her fight with Jan Finney on youtube. Finney is a a 135lb fighter and was 4-6 when she faced Toughill and the fight was extremely close and could have went either way. Can Toughill even make 145. Shes like 5'10 and big boned.

I was looking for one well placed upkick by Marloes to the chin of Cyborg. That certainly would have backed her off. And Cyborg was wide open for one.

excuses for what? Erin will have her belt and for a long time, good luck finding someone that can even compete with herErin will dictate the entire fight, much physically stronger
