Jay Hieron vs. Joe Riggs announced for “Strikeforce: Miami”

joe riggsIt appears as though a card already packed with talent is getting a bit deeper, as Jay Hieron has announced he will be looking to extend his six-fight win streak against notable welterweight Joe “Diesel” Riggs at the Strikeforce event on January 30th in Miami.

The 18-4 Long Islander broke the news to fans earlier today via his Twitter page. Riggs has also racked up a number of consecutive wins as of late, including two this past December, and was last seen in Strikeforce defeating Phil Baroni by unanimous decision last June.

The bout rounds out an already-stacked card set to feature twin title-fights between welterweights Nick Diaz and Marius Zaromskis, as well as women’s champ Cris “Cyborg” Santos and Marloes Coenen, a sure-to-be entertaining brawl between Melvin Manhoef and Robbie Lawler, and the promotional debuts of both Bobby Lashley and Herschel Walker.
