Josh Thomson Returns To Cage Next Month Vs. Caros Fodor

Lightweights Josh Thomson and Caros Fodor will hit the cage in September, as reported the two have signed to meet at Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Healy.

The card takes place September 29 from Sacramento. In the main event, Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez will defend his title against Pat Healy.

Both Thomson (19-5) and Fodor are familiar with Melendez and Healy. Thomson was defeated in a razor-close decision by Melendez earlier this year.

Fodor (7-2), meanwhile, had his five-fight win streak snapped at the hands of Healy when he last entered the cage.
