Nick Thompson Signs Contract With Strikeforce


The list of fighters moving from EliteXC to Strikeforce continues to grow. MMAWeekly Radio on Tuesday night confirmed that Top 10 welterweight Nick Thompson has signed on with the promotion and could fight as early as their April 11 event on Showtime.

“They just called me today and they're going to pick me up,” Thompson said about Strikeforce. “So I am now with Sengoku and Strikeforce.”

The San Jose, Calif., based promotion is filling up the April card quickly for its Showtime debut, but they are also expected to field a show in May in Washington that could feature names like Robbie Lawler and Phil Baroni. Thompson said following a recent win over Paul Daley, he's ready for whatever.

“They asked me how soon I would want to fight, and I said throw me in the frying pan, let's go,” he commented.
