Because of the recent cancellation of 2 of Strikeforce's events, many people believe it was shaddowing an end to the company and now we will see if that is to still be decided.
Gilbert "El Nino" Melendez is set to face off against Pat "Bam Bam" Healy in a fight that was originally scheduled in 2012 and was cancelled because of an injury that Gilbert received in training. The 2 now have a date and will fight in the early part of 2013.
Luke Rockold now has a new date for his title fight with Lorenz Larkin. He will look to defend his Middleweight title for the 3rd time against the tough technical striker in Larkin. As you all know they were also scheduled to fight in 2012 but had to cancel because of injuries obtained by Rockhold. Will Luke defend his title for A 3rd time or will Larkins striking be to much for the AKA Protege.
Nate "The Great" Marquart set to face off against Tarec Saffiedine in his first title defense at the Stikeforce Welterweight Champion. Marquart is coming off a spectacular K.O. in capturing the vacant Welterweight over Tyron Woodley. He will defend his title against the tough and durable Saffiedine who is coming off a decision victory over Roger Bowling.
Finally Daniel "DC"Cormier will compete in his final Strikeforce fight against the native of the Netherlands Dion "The Soldier" Staring who is making his Strikeforce Debut. Daniel has been sitting and waiting after the fallout of his fight with Frank Mir and the cancellation of the Strikeforce Event. He now has a date for his final fight and we can all hope that none of these fighters have any sort of complications prior to this event.
This is looking to be one of the best Strikeforce Cards of all time!
