This Saturday, Dec. 19, 2009, Strikeforce proves just how much they have grown as an organization with their “Evolution” card, taking place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. If you are planning to attend the event, you can still get good seats, and if you plan to watch on TV, the event airs free on Showtime beginning at 10PM ET/PT.
The main card for this event is absolutely stacked (was even more stacked) from top to bottom. In the lone championship bout on the card, Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Josh Thomson (16-2) is finally getting back in the cage after a disappointing year ridden with injuries and fight cancellations, to face Gilbert Melendez (16-2), who currently holds Strikeforce’s Interim Lightweight Title.
The two will be looking to unify their titles for the undisputed lightweight championship, and Melendez will be looking for revenge for his June 2008 unanimous decision loss to Thomson.
