After winning and defending the EliteXC Welterweight Championship, Jake Shields had established himself as one of the top ten welterweights in the world. When he came over to Strikeforce in 2009, however, he had his sights set on the middleweight division, and in June of 2009, he defeated top middleweight Robbie Lawler with a first-round Guillotine Choke. In other action, Brett Rogers upset Andrei Arlovski with a first-round knockout, while Nick Diaz defeated Scott Smith.
