Strikeforce agrees to Nick Diaz vs. Roy Jones Jr.
I REALLY hope this gets green-lit by Showtime
After reports surfaced that Dana White had nixed the idea of a fight between Roy Jones Jr and Anderson Silva occuring in the UFC, Strikeforce founder, Scott Coker, agreed to make the fight happen in Strikeforce. Nick Diaz would be fighting Roy Jones Jr.under MMA rules.
"We would absolutely set this fight up. Of course we would have to run it by Showtime for final approval, but I don't see why we wouldn't have this fight" -Scott Coker
It now seems that the only hope of seeing one of the legends of boxing stepping into a cage will be through Strikeforce.

What is Roy Jones Jr. doing to prepare for this fight? He does know there is wrestling and jiujitsu involved, doesn't he?
