Josh Thomson taking on Caros Fodor at September Strikeforce show
With his 34th birthday only a month away and an injury-plagued career thus far, Strikeforce lightweight Josh Thomson knows the time for putting together one more title-run is now rather than meant for revisiting a few years down the road. Fittingly enough, it appears Thomson will in fact face “The Future” in his next fight, as the former divisional champion revealed over the weekend he had agreed to face Caros Fodor on September 29 at Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Healy. |
Thomson announced the bout during a recent interview with Sherdog.
“The Punk” is coming off a Split Decision loss to title-holder Gilbert Melendez despite many fans feeling as though he’d won the match-up. He holds an overall record of 19-5 including thirteen stoppages and past success against the likes of Melendez, K.J. Noons, Duane Ludwig, Nam Phan, and Gesias Cavalcante.

In addition to Melendez-Healy, next month’s lineup will also feature action from Isaac Vallie-Flagg and Jorge Santiago.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
