Xtreme Couture’s Hieron to face Nick Diaz at Strikeforce show

Xtreme Couture fighter Jay Hieron, who was training for Paul “Semtex” Daley at this weekend's scheduled Affliction “Trilogy” card, will now take on Nick Diaz on Strikeforce's Aug. 15 card in San Jose, Calif. Hieron replaces Joe Riggs, who was forced out of his rematch against Diaz last week.

The Hieron vs. Diaz fight is one of four title tilts set to take place at the HP Pavilion with the main event between Gina Carano and Cris "Cyborg" Santos for Strikeforce's first-ever 145-pound women's title.
