MMAWeekly’s Scott Petersen and Tom Call are in San Jose tonight bringing you tonight’s first ever MMA show in California. As always we will have live results on both the Soundoff Forum and the Live Fighter Chat tonight.
This Strike Force card is pretty stacked with some great names in MMA. Nick Diaz’s brother, Nathan will be one of the featured prelim fights to kick off the night. Then Shooto Champion Gilbert Melendez will square off against Harris Sarmiento. Daniel Puder of WWE and Tough Enough fame fights in MMA for just the second time in his career against Jesse Fujarcyk.
Team Quests Matt Horwich goes against Brian Ebersole. Mike Kyle returns to the heavyweight division against Krzysztof Soszyzski. After two years away from the sport, former UFC fighter Eugene Jackson returns to MMA action. Josh Thomson returns to the 155 division tonight and if all goes well he will get set to fly to Japan next month to fight in Bushido.
Finally in the co-main event, we see the much anticpated debut of Cung Le in MMA. Le squares off against kickboxer Mike Altman. The main event of the evening will be Frank Shamrock facing off against Cesar Gracie in a family feud. Once again already 15,000 tickets have been sold and the HP Pavillion will open up the building to seat up to 17,000 fans. Get all the LIVE action tonight on the Soundoff Forum.
