StrikeForce Grand Prix Card Takes a Hit: Josh Thomson Out With Foot Injury

Upsetting news breaking on Strikeforce’s next card in September — Josh “The Punk” Thomson has pulled out of his upcoming fight due to injuries suffered during training. He Tweeted earlier today about a mishap while sparring and going for X rays, and those newshounds at MMAFighting confirmed the news this afternoon.

That’s a pretty bitch, since we were really looking forward to Thomson’s bout, welcoming Japanese superhero Maximo Blanco to Strikeforce and North America in a bout that was guaranteed to be a parade of asskickery.

No word yet on who will be picked to replace Thomson, but may we suggest JZ Cavalcante?

It's a lie he was rolling with Paul Harris, and he said heel hooks never work.

No surprise there. Josh Thompson is always a -600 favorite to be injured and back out of a fight.

Hopefully they'll bump up Santos/Mein to the main card now.
