Marius Zaromskis inks deal with Strikeforce

marius zaromskis170 pound wrecking machine Marius Zaromskis has recently inked a multi-fight agreement with Strikeforce.

The news of the signing was recently confirmed through a report on

Th DREAM welterweight champion could reportedly make his debut with Strikeforce as soon as December 19 at an event expected to take place from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.

It appears as though the contract will also allow “The Whitemare” to compete in the DREAM promotion while also fighting under the Srikeforce banner.

The Lithuanian knockout artist has recorded eleven KO or TKO stoppages in thirteen victories, with all three of his previous victories being capped off by a head kick. Zaromskis is currently on a five fight win streak, with notable wins over Hayato Sakurai and Jason High on the same evening.

  • There are a handful of solid match-ups Strikeforce can provide, considering Zaromskis’ relative inexperience.

    No way he’s ready for the likes of Alves or Fitch but he’s a perfect match-up for Scott Smith or Nick Diaz.

    nice work Strikeforce, the guy could be a killer with the right opponents to work on.

    He can join the list of worst nicknames in mma tho

  • Jstew3785 says:

    Scott Smith and Diaz are MW’s, so do you think he should move up? There’s nothing for him at WW other than Hieron.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    a fight with Nick Diaz would be peachy

  • Niv says:

    Slowly but surely, one fighter at a time SF is putting together a very nice stable of fighters.

    Shane Del Rosario in the HW division, Zaromskis in the WW division and possibly Hendo in the MW or LHW division.

    Not bad.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    i’m excited to see Del Rosario take a step up in competition

  • nate says:

    i’m very excited with this signing. if SF continues to pace itself and buy up developing talent to fill it’s rosters rather than dump all of it’s cash on big name zuffa left overs things could get exciting. think if they broke the bank and got Hendo..then what? he runs 185 and then is the only challenger for gegard? i hope they don’t.. let hendo stay in UFC and let SF continue to load up it’s roster with maybe not all the best fighters in the world but atleast they can put on quality high level mma events i don’t have to pay $55 a pop for.

    ps. Zaromskis – new Head Kick KO King FTW!

  • Niv says:

    nate, I wouldn’t worry too much about breaking the bank with Hendo.

    SF has put itself in a very nice position with this network deal. There are probably a whole new range of ways to compensate a fighter now that they have CBS as a backer.

    SF should sign as many legitimate fighters as they can, they’re off to a good start and this could really help take mma to a whole new level. (I’m a firm believer that healthy competition breeds a better product here, and eventually a better work place for fighters)

    Now if anyone is going to compare SF to Elite XC they will be way off base. The difference here should be plain and simple to see. Right from the start you have the worlds best fighter as your headliner with Fedor, as opposed to an over hyped internet brawler. You have a world class LHW fighter to build that division around in Moussasi, a Hendo signing could be an easy MW champ and we slowly pick up fighters for each division to help build them.

    With the CBS deal and the cooperation between other organizations like Dream, and K1 as examples you should be able to put together some decent cards on network tv on a fairly regular basis. This in itself with credible mma fighters and a good stable of female fighters as well should help build interest and a real fan following that may not have been there before, and of course you save $55 once in a while.
