Strikeforce has posted a highlight reel for Saturday night’s upcoming Luke Rockhold-Keith Jardine main event fight from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rockhold will make his first title defense against Jardine, a former UFC fighter who has worked his way back into contention through a handful of solid showings at 205 pounds.
Rockhold, the AKA-trained fighter, claimed the title in 2011 by outpointing Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and sports a career record of 8-1. He is a perfect 7-0 since joining Strikeforce, including wins over Paul Bradley and Jesse Taylor.
Jardine is 17-9-2 overall, including a 2-0-1 mark since 2010. He holds past victories over Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin.
Also set for Saturday night’s lineup, Robbie Lawler takes on Adlan Amagov, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal meets Lorenz Larkin, Tyron Woodley battles Jordan Mein, and Tarec Saffiedine locks horns with Tyler Stinson. The main card will take place on Showtime while the four-fight preliminary portion will be seen on Showtime Extreme.
