Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz bumped his pro record to 24-7 (1NC) following his impressive tapout victory over Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos on Saturday night.
Diaz endured numerous kicks to his lead leg in the first five minutes, but managed to rally and collect an armbar submission victory with only 10 seconds remaining in the 2ndRound.
Mr. 209 has rattled off nine consecutive victories, with only one of his wins ending via decision during that stretch. After years of division hopping, Diaz has emerged a completely different fighter since settling in the 170-pound weight class in early 2010.
“Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg” took place Saturday night inside the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
