A lightweight bout between Brazilian heavy hitter, Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante and former Strikeforce lightweight champion, Josh Thomson looks to be under way for Strikeforce’s October 9th card in San Jose, California.

Cavalcante’s manager, Alex Davishe, speaking to MMAWeekly.com, said:

“It’s a very good fight, I think it’s a great fight for JZ. For JZ, it’s important to come fight on American soil. He’s done very, very well in Japan, he came off some injuries and took some losses because he fought not at 100%. He took a tough fight recently, he played it safe and he won, and now he’s going to fight Josh Thomson,” Davis stated. “I expect him to do very, very well.”
