Strikeforce 'Shamrock vs. Diaz' tickets on sale today

Tickets go on sale today for the Strikeforce "Shamrock vs. Diaz" event on April 11 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. Ticket prices range from $30 to $350.

Strikeforce recently purchased EliteXC's assets and the April 11 show will air live on Showtime.

In the main event under a catchweight of 179 pounds, former Strikeforce middleweight champion Frank Shamrock (24-9-1) will take on former EliteXC 160-pound title contender Nick Diaz (18-7). Diaz will return to his UFC weight of welterweight after this fight.

Diaz will look to avenge his trainer Cesar Gracie's loss to Shamrock at Strikeforce "Shamrock vs. Gracie" in March 2006. In the only MMA fight of his career, Gracie was knocked out in 21 seconds.

The other announced bout is a middleweight contest between Scott Smith (16-5) and Benji Radach (19-5), who both raised their visibility last year with EliteXC fights on CBS.
