Two days after announcing two title fights would headline their January 29th show, Strikeforce has released the official event poster for “Diaz vs. Cyborg.”
Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza puts his middleweight belt on the line for the first time when he squares off with “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler in the night’s co-main event. Nick Diaz makes his second welterweight title defense when he faces Brazilian powerhouse Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos in the card’s featured attraction.
Although Jacare has the hardware hanging on his mantle, Lawler’s image is not only plastered front and center of the ad, but he’s also the only athlete presented in color.
Even Diaz, the show’s biggest superstar, appears in black and white.
Needless to say, Lawler owes Strikeforce’s graphics department a solid.
Here are fighters expected to compete inside the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California:
Trevor Prangley vs. Roger Gracie
Herschel Walker vs. Scott Carson
Tim Kennedy vs. Jason “Mayhem” Miller
Robbie Lawler vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (Strikeforce Middleweight Champion)
Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos vs. Nick Diaz (Strikeforce Welterweight Champion)
