Strikeforce continues to pump up it’s June 22nd lineup, adding Josh Thomson to the lineup vs K1 kickboxer Nick Gonzalez. Josh’s name might be familiar. He’s kicked the ass of some pretty serious competition, including Nam Phan and Duane Ludwig. He’s also the dude that was suspended for 6 months over the t-shirt pictured above. Just another stupid suspension doled out by the CSAC. You also may be confusing him with big dumb bull James Thompson, who almost murdered Don Frye in the ring at Pride34.
This officially makes the Strikeforce show 10x better than UFC 72. Not only is the Shamrock-Baroni main event a solid one, but the undercard destroys the UFC: Cung Le vs Tony Fryklund, Joey Villasenor vs Ninja Rua, Paul Buentello vs Carter Williams, and Krazy Horse Bennet vs Joe Boxer. I’ve said it before and I’m saying it now: If you’re gonna buy a PPV in June, make it the Strikeforce show.
