They added 3 fights to the card, prelims, here's the rundown:

With the Showtime-televised main card set, the preliminary-card lineup for next month's "Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons II" event is taking shape.

Three bouts have been added to the Oct. 9 card, which takes place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

They include welterweights James Terry (7-2 MMA, 2-1 SF) vs. Bret Bergmark (6-1-1 MMA, 1-0 SF), middleweights Eric Lawson (9-3 MMA, 5-1 SF) vs. Ron Keslar (5-2 MMA, 0-1 SF), and lightweights Jess Bouscal (2-2 MMA, 0-0 SF) vs. Luis Mendoza (0-0 MMA, 0-0 SF).

They precede the night's main card, which is headlined by a long-awaited rematch between current Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz and former EliteXC title-holder K.J. Noons.

Terry, based in San Jose with Cung Le's fight team, makes his fourth Strikeforce appearance following a pair of wins over Zak Bucia and a recent decision loss to fast-rising Tarec Saffiedine. Bergmark, a former WEC fighter who's only career loss came to current UFC fighter Mike Pyle back in 2005, returned from a two-year layoff and scored a decision win over Vagner Rocha in his June Strikeforce debut.

Lawson, meanwhile, recently saw his five-fight Strikeforce win streak snapped when he recently suffered a submission loss to Wayne Phillips at Strikeforce Challengers 6 in February. He looks to get back on track against Keslar, whose four-fight win streak came to an end when he suffered a TKO loss to Chris Cope during his Strikeforce debut in June.

Finally, Bouscal makes his Strikeforce debut after a four-year break from the sport. Most recently, in 2006, he posted a runner-up finish in a single-night four-man tournament in Guam. He takes on Mendoza, an Illinois-based fighter who's been on Strikeforce's radar for a year but never made his pro debut.

The full card includes:

MAIN CARD

* Champ Nick Diaz vs. K.J. Noons (for welterweight title)
* Champ Sarah Kaufman vs. Marloes Coenen (for women's welterweight title)
* Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante vs. Josh Thomson
* Andre Galvao vs. Tyron Woodley

PRELIMINARY CARD

* Bret Bergmark vs. James Terry
* Ron Keslar vs. Eric Lawson
* Jess Bouscal vs. Luis Mendoza
