strikeforcecrestA pair of Strikeforce title bouts were announced over the weekend for the promotion’s upcoming January 30 card, which will be taking place on January 30 from Sunrise, Florida.

Nick Diaz will be facing off with Marius Zaromskis for the Strikeforce welterweight crown, while Cris Cyborg and Marloes Coenen will duke it out for the 145 pound female title.

The January date will mark Diaz’ first return to action since June when he finished Scott Smith with a rear-naked choke, while Zaromskis will be making his Strikeforce debut fresh off of his DREAM welterweight Grand Prix championship.

Cyborg will be making her first title defense since putting a beating on Gina Carano in August, while Coenen recently stopped Roxanne Modafferi with a first round armbar in November.
