Strikeforce: Los Angeles combatants gathered at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. for the promotion's official post-fight press conference. The event was headlined by 195-pound Light Heavyweight match up between Renato "Babalu" Sobral and the "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler, which the Brazilian won via Unanimous Decision. Strikeforce CEO
Scott Coker revealed at the press conference that KJ Noons (defeated Conor Heun via Split Decision) could square off against the Welterweigth Champion Nick Diaz, as Noons was the last man to beat Diaz and is currently on a five-fight winning streak. The previous fight between the two took place at EliteXC: Renegade, almost three years ago. KJ Noons won that fight via TKO due to numerous cuts.
Next Strikeforce attraction will be the long-anticipated Fedor vs Werdum fight card, which will take place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. Strikeforce Womens Champion Cris Cyborg will defend her title against Jan Finney, as Cung Le will rematch Scott Smith.
