As the dust settles on last night’s Strikeforce: Houston event fans can now look forward to the newly announced Strikeforce: San Jose event which has now been officially announced for October 9th.

The event will be headlined by Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz who will take on an as yet unannounced opponent.  It’s been rumored that Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller who he has a rivalry with stemming from the brawl at the Nashville event back in April could be the man for the job, though there’s believed to be some issues over what the weight limit should be if that fight does go down.

Meanwhile one fight that is certain is Sarah Kaufman’s big event debut as she defends her woman’s title against Marloes Coenen who moves to 135lbs for the title shot after being unsuccessful against Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos.

Another Strikeforce: Challengers favorite Luke Rockhold is also set to make his main card debut riding a six fight win streak as he takes on the veteran Matt Lindland.

Tickets for the event go on sale this week.
