Ervine, California (PressExposure) February 16, 2011 -- "This event was one of Strike force's best yet," said Damian Kutzner, Serious Pimp CEO. "Fans got to see five amazing title bouts, two of which were won by Serious Pimp fighters."
Nick Diaz took control of his fight with Lithuanian-born striker Marius Zaromskis early, knocking down Zaromskis down with a short right hook. The fight ended in a knockdown when Zaromskis, the reigning Dream champion, succumbed 4 minutes, 38 seconds into Round 1. Diaz captured the vacant Strike force welterweight championship and claimed his sixth consecutive victory.
Strike force women's lightweight champion Christiane "Cyborg" Santos overpowered Marloes Coenen in the third round of their title match. Defending her crown for the first time, Santos was in charge throughout the match, eventually wearing down Coenen. Santos finished the fight when she took a dominant position over the battle-weary Coonan.
After the fight, Santos said, "I'm very happy. I prepared myself very much. I trained a lot."
Serious Pimp sponsored Diaz and Santos so that they could showcase their fighting spirit and MMA attitude for a worldwide audience.
"We are proud to support all the fighters who enter the cage," said Serious Pimp CEO Damian Kutzner. "Both Christiane 'Cyborg' Santos and Nick Diaz are strong fighters. They have the right attitude and they gave the fans a great show."
