Strikeforce Signs Zaromskis
Saturday, October 31, 2009
by Brian Knapp (

Dream welterweight champion Marius Zaromskis has come to terms on a multi-fight contract with Strikeforce, according to officials within the promotion.

An emerging superstar at 170 pounds, the 29-year-old Lithuanian could make his promotional debut on Dec. 19 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. Zaromskis will still compete inside the Japan-based Dream organization, which has formed an alliance with Strikeforce.

Having supplanted Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic as the man with the sport’s most-feared feet, Zaromskis last competed at Dream 12 on Oct. 25, when he leveled Korean Myeon Ho Bae with a first-round head kick in a non-title affair. He captured the Dream welterweight crown in July, as he stopped Affliction veteran Jason High and respected Japanese standout Hayato "Mach" Sakurai on the same night. Both were victimized by Zaromskis head kicks.

Spawned by the London Shootfighters camp, Zaromskis joins a stable of Strikeforce welterweights that includes former EliteXC champion Jake Shields, UFC veteran Nick Diaz and one-time International Fight League titleholder Jay Hieron.

Great news. He could be a force. Does anyone know about his ground game?

This is another solid acquisition for Scott Coker.

No doubt a very solid signing for SF. I was hoping he'd come sraight to the UFC though...

Love watching Zaromskis fights... Not sure how he'll do against grappling / ground game guys, as his style appears a bit reckless at times. But that's why I enjoy his fights :)

Kudos to SF for the signing.

Hope he goes undefeated in StrikeForce and signs up with you know who. Man endless fights with this guy in the other league.

Definitely a crowd pleaser. He has a wicked arsenal of kicks...
