Believe it or not, Strikeforce is hosting a major event this Saturday inside the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. While the show hasn’t garnered much hoopla, despite featuring a cameo by Herschel Walker and two championship affairs, America’s other MMA organization quietly arranged a solid fight card.

Understanding the Heavyweight Grand Prix is on everyone’s mind, there will in fact be other mixed martial arts action going down in divisions outside of the 265-pound weight class.

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, while Nick Diaz defends his welterweight strap against Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos in the card’s featured attraction.

Showtime will broadcast Saturday’s event at 10PM ET/PT. Don’t be scared to watch, homiess
