STRIKEFORCE: SHAMROCK vs. DIAZ live results

PRO MMA (promma.info) was sitting cage side at “Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz” Saturday night, April 11, in San Jose, California. From the first bout to the last, the entire card was action packed. Only one fight went the distance and it was on the under card un-televised portion. Showtime viewers got a real treat with this reintroduction to MMA.

In the end, “The Legend” seemed more like a fable as the younger, taller, longer, and larger Nick Diaz kept Shamrock at bay with jabs and combinations. Shamrock occasionally found his way through the forest of punches but it was rare and even then it was only one or two shots at a time.
