Strikeforce lightweight title match between Melendez and Thomson is off

An anticipated Strikeforce lightweight title match between incumbent Gilbert Melendez and challenger Josh Thomson that was expected to have taken place on the undercard of the Frank Shamrock vs. Cung Le main event on March 29, is now off.

The report comes from Sherdog.com’s Josh Gross, who indicates that the match was scratched after Thomson sustained an injury while training with “Razor” Rob McCullough at the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, Calif.

Apparently the shoulder had been previously injured and Thomson suffered a separation. The severity of the injury is not yet known but Gross reports that Thomson will undergo surgery on Thursday.
