Nick "The Goat" Thompson Acquired By Strikeforce.



Quote:
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.

Nick Thompson is an excellent choice by Coker. They need to bulk up the WW division.

The Goat is an underrated fighter. Impressive in his last fight.

I've never thought about a Thompson-Baroni fight.

I'd pick Thompson to win that one. The Goat is a decent compeditor. I'd like to see him fight Nick Diaz. Although I think Nick would win, I'd still like to see how they match up.

Nick would mostly certainly win. I'd put money on it. All of my money. Ever.

Anyways, nice to see Strikeforce continuing to bolster its roster. Also nice to see them putting shows on more frequently now that they have the roster to support it. Scott Coker is a smart dude, and I see Strikeforce being around and successful (although not on the UFC's level) for a long time, which is refreshing.

.

I got a sig bet against anyone who says that Nick wouldn't win in a Thompson VS Diaz fight.
