Riggs vs. Baroni or Rogers vs. TBA to complete April 11 Showtime card

Quote:
A middleweight bout between Joe Riggs (29-10) and Phil Baroni (13-10), or a heavyweight bout between Brett Rogers (8-0) and an as-yet-undetermined heavyweight, will take the final spot on the April 11 "Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz" Showtime-televised main card.

Strikeforce promoter Scott Coker confirmed the two options in a one-on-one interview with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) at Thursday's Los Angeles press conference.

The press conference was held to promote Strikeforce's upcoming debut on Showtime and the April 11 event, which takes place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

Frank Shamrock and Nick Diaz meet in the night's main event at a catch-weight of 179 pounds.

Other televised bouts include Strikeforce world lightweight champion Josh Thomson vs. Gilbert Melendez, Benji Radach vs. Scott Smith, and Hitomi Akano vs. Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos.

The final slot could go to Riggs, who was originally expected to fight Jake Shields at the April 11 event, and Baroni, who had expected to fight at Strikeforce's upcoming May show.

"Once Shields signed to fight Lawler, Riggs asked to fight Baroni," Coker said.

Riggs is 4-2 since leaving the UFC after a December 2006 decision loss to Diego Sanchez and most recently defeated Luke Stewart via second-round TKO. Baroni is 3-0 since a three-fight losing skid he endured from 2007-2008.

Rogers, meanwhile, is a perfect 8-0, and all eight of his victories have come via first-round stoppage due to strikes. He went 3-0 in EliteXC (with wins over Ralph Kelly, James Thompson and Jon Murphy) before the organization's eventual collapse.

Rogers was one of the more than 40 EliteXC fighters that Strikeforce picked up with a recent purchase of EliteXC assets.
