Nick Diaz vs. Frank Shamrock (4/11/2009)
In Strikeforce’s first event since purchasing the assets of ProElite, Diaz squared off with the legendary Frank Shamrock in his first venture in the middleweight division. There was some bad blood between the two, at least from Diaz’ perspective, considering Shamrock knocked out Cesar Gracie (Diaz’s trainer) just three years prior. Diaz utterly demolished Shamrock in the fight and proved he could be a force in two weight classes.
