Nate Diaz vs Josh Thomson, Pat Healy vs Jim Miller

Quote:
MMA Junkie reports that Josh Thomson (19-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will make his return to the UFC after seven years for a fight with Nate Diaz (16-8 MMA, 7-6 UFC) at UFC on FOX 7. The event takes place on April 20 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. It's unknown if the fight will be on the FOX main ard or the preliminary card on FX and Facebook.

Thomson won his first lightweight title with Strikeforce in the same venue before losing it to Gilbert Melendez. In May, he lost a rematch, who was booed when it was announced that he won via split decision. Thomson, nicknamed "The Punk", ended his run with Strikeforce with a record of 10-4. He went 2-1 in his first UFC run, which ended in 2004 after being knocked out by Yves Edwards.

Diaz's most recent fight was Benson Henderson at UFC on FOX 5 for the lightweight title. He lost by unanimous decision, ending a three fight win streak after a run at welterweight. Diaz' teammate, Melendez, will challenge Henderson at UFC on FOX 7 in the main event.
Quote:
UFC officials announced that UFC lightweight fighter Jim Miller will face former Strikeforce competitor Pat Healy at UFC 159. The fight will be held in Miller's home turf of Newark, New Jersey. Miller is coming off a win over Joe Lauzon in a Fight of the Year candidate at UFC 155. Healy won his last six fights in Strikeforce before the promotion was recently dissolved and was 7-1 overall in the promotion. Healy was twice scheduled to face Gilbert Melendez for the Strikeforce lightweight title, but the fight fell through due to injury for Melendez
Looks like this whole Strikeforce vs UFC thing might go down over all of April instead of just one event.
