Fresh off a dominating victory over Paul Daley at MFC 20 less then a week ago, Nick Thompson has signed on with Strikeforce and could debut as early as their April 11 event.
Thompson will fulfill his other contractual obligation with Japan’s Sengoku organization later this year. Thompson is interested in competing in Sengoku’s welterweight tournament sometime this year.
Nick Thompson joins other fighters such as Nick Diaz, Jake Shields, Joe Riggs, and Phil Baroni in the ever expanding Strikeforce welterweight division. Shinya Aoki and Mach Sakurai are also rumored to be loaned from Japan’s Dream organization to be apart of Strikeforce’s welterweight division.
