Strikeforce welterweight champion, Nick Diaz pulled off another great show of heart again last night with a first round TKO win over Paul “Semtex” Daley in San Diego, California, surviving two scares in the opening five minutes before ending the fight with less than ten seconds remaining in the opening round.

Strikeforce lightweight champion, Gilbert Melendez gave his argument that he is the number one 155 pounder on the planet after stopping Japanese star, Tatsuya Kawajiri in the very first round via TKO.

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Gegard Mousasi and former UFC veteran, Keith Jardine battled their way to a majority draw after the Armenian born fighter was deducted a point for an illegal up-kick. DREAM’s lightweight champion, Shinya Aoki picked up his first win on American soil defeating Lyle Beerbohm via neck crank in the very first round.
