Nick Diaz vs. Scott Smith added to June 6 Strikeforce

Another catchweight bout, Nick Diaz vs Scott Smith, has been added to the Strikeforce "Lawler vs Shields" event on Showtime happening June 6 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.

Diaz (19-7), a welterweight, will fight middleweight Smith (17-5) in a 180-pound bout.

"I usually take a few weeks off, get out of shape and go up to about 210 pounds and wind up spending a few weeks just getting back in shape," Smith said. "But I decided I wasn't going to do that this time. I'm 195 pounds right now and I feel great."

The event is being headlined by a 182-pound bout between middleweight Robbie Lawler and welterweight Jake Shields.

Diaz and Smith were both victorious this month at Strikeforce's debut on Showtime, "Shamrock vs Diaz" in San Jose.
