    A second Showtime event is planned for May at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Wash., site of Strikeforce’s first foray outside California. Ed Soares and Jorge Guimaraes, representatives for former EliteXC fighter Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante, have already cleared him for a bout with Strikeforce light heavyweight Renato “Babalu” Sobral on the card. Sobral is expected to be offered the fight this week, though nothing is set in stone at this point.

    Coker says his relationship with Japanese promoters from Dream and Sengoku will be essential for filling 2009’s calendar. In September, he gave standouts Kazuo Misaki and Ishida their first fights for an American promotion, and sees many exciting match-ups possible for as early as May. Among his “dream” fights: Melvin Manhoef vs. Robbie Lawler, Joachim Hansen vs. Josh Thomson, and Shinya Aoki vs. Gilbert Melendez.

    “We’re going to continue to expand on that relationship,” he said. “We’d like to have some of their top guys come and fight some of our top guys.”

    Fuck Babalu, but this should be a pretty easy win for him. Hopefully I'm underestimating Feijao

    He's a hell of a fighter, but holding a choke until the guy passes out is a bitch move that we don't need to see in the sport of MMA.

    I guess Im the only one that thinks Feijao will win easily. Babalu seems to slow and loves eating punches to the face.

    Also Manhoef will own... unless Lawler goes for a takedown, dont see that happening though

    DAMN strike force had a relatively slow year last year with 1 or 2 big events. This year they are coming out guns ablazing.
