According to Sherdog.com:

Sherdog.com learned today via sources close to the promotion that Strikeforce is planning to run its previously scheduled April date in California, and that the two remaining quarterfinal bouts will most likely be pushed off the card.

A fight between Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez and Japanese slugger Tatsuya Kawajiri is expected to comprise one of the top two spots on the bill, while welterweight champion Nick Diaz is expected to fill the other slot against a yet-to-be-named opponent. (Paul Daley or Tyron Woodley)

might not be SF's fault.
We don't know why it's changed, but I bet it has to do with "someone" not getting a license to fight in US, so they change the card and will do an international one for the next leg of the HW tourney...

both know who someone is and it most certainly is SF fault. They should have never allowed that 3 time cheat to participate in the tourney.

If he paid his dues (punishment) and has passed all the tests since then whats the hold up?

Bring the fight back to Atlantic City! go to Miami or Vegas

...or at least had the foresight to hold the place in another locale. Tijuana is RIGHT THERE, and would be fantastic!
