Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said the promotion will have beefed-up security for its Saturday main event rematch between Nick Diaz and KJ Noons.
Coker told Ariel Helwani on Monday's edition of "The MMA Hour" that because of the heated nature of the rivalry between Diaz, the Strikeforce welterweight champion, and Noons, the last man to beat him, the promotion was taking no chances.
"I'll tell you what – if we leave those two guys in a room alone, I think you know what's going to happen," Coker said. "So it's up to us – we're going to have a wall of security there. We've brought extra police to handle the weigh-ins, the press conference and pretty much a wall of people will be there for the night of the fight. We have to take precautionary measures because these guys have this big feud – and it's not just them, it's their camps. We're going to make sure that we host it properly, and part of that is adding extra security and police officers, and it'll be fine."
