With two big events this weekend, Strikeforce’s “Shamrock vs. Baroni” and The Ultimate Fighter 5 Finale, MMAWeekly brings you another tremendous night of radio.
Long in the shadow of his brother Nick, Nathan Diaz earned his stripes by making it to the final of The Ultimate Fighter. On Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nathan steps into the Octagon to attempt to take his success one step further and win the big contract. He’ll have to get through the cousin Karo Parisyan, when he faces Manny Gamburyan.
On that same fight card on Spike TV, Joe Lauzon will attempt to further a strong performance on the show by squaring up with Brandon Melendez. Lauzon made it all the way to the quarterfinals before losing a three-round decision to Gamburyan.
A very popular fighter in the San Jose, Calif. area where Strikeforce will hold its “Shamrock vs. Baroni” event on Friday night, Josh Thomson looks to continue his three-fight winning streak. Thomson puts his 11-2 professional record on the line against the 11-4 record of Nick Gonzalez as part of the undercard.
