Strikeforce Media Conference Roundup

Here are some notes from yesterday’s Strikeforce Media Conference:

– A fight is in works between Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson and former EliteXC lightweight champion K.J Noons. If this does happen, it would be Thomson’s first title defense.

– Phil Baroni says he’ll be fighting at a Strikeforce event in May. Baroni has won three straight fights since he dropped to welterweight from middleweight.

– Strikeforce has declined to acquire the contracts of Antonion Silva and Murilo “Ninja” Rua.

– Gilbert Melendez is rumored to be fighting Mitsuhiro Ishida at the April 11th show. Gilbert had suffered the first loss of his career to Ishida.

– It was announced that the Nick Diaz – Frank Shamrock fight will be fought at a catchweight of 179 lbs.
