Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez will get another crack at Josh Thomson and the Strikeforce lightweight belt on April 11 at Strikeforce “Shamrock vs. Diaz”, according to MMAJunkie.

Strikeforce executive Mike Afromowitz:

“We were excited to put in on … I think everyone wanted it, whether it was Showtime or Strikeforce. … The first one was a great, and I think fans were hungry for more. Josh got the better of Gil that night, but it was still nominated as one of the year’s best fights.

“Both guys are top-10 lightweights any way you look at it.”

Thomson defeated Melendez by unanimous decision to take the Strikeforce lightweight title back in June of 2008.
