Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker was expectedly happy after Saturday night’s "Evolution" event in San Jose, Calif. The event exceeded expectations and featured a clear-cut “Fight of the Year” candidate in the Gilbert Melendez-Josh Thomson rematch. It also included a spectacular come-from-behind victory by heavy underdog Scott Smith, who stopped previously undefeated Cung Le.
