Diaz Denied Fight at Strikeforce on June 26thPosted on May 1, 2010, 01:57 PM by Daniel Cassidy
Despite being the company's welterweight champion, Strikeforce's Nick Diaz won't be appearing at the their next planned event on June 26th, in San Jose, California.
His role in the Strikeforce: Nashville post main event brawl that will cost him a chance to defend his gold. It is believed it was the company themselves who veto'ed a fight for Diaz's Welterweight Championship until the outcome of The Tennessee Athletic Commission's report on the brawl, which marred an otherwise succesful card for the UFC's rival company.
This matches the same fate which prevented a bout between Jason Miller and Robbie Lawler, which was scheduled to take place at Strikeforce: Los Angeles, however a catchweight 195 lbs fight between Lawler and Reanto "Babalu" Sobral will be the main event.
