Strikeforce kicks off the new year with the first major MMA card of 2012 featuring a title fight and established fighters taking on up-and-comers. Tomorrow night at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine goes down with the company hoping to start the year right after signing a new deal with Showtime. The night will be headlined by a middleweight title fight featuring champion Luke Rockhold defending his title against MMA veteran Keith Jardine. Also on the card is former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed Lawal battling the undefeated Lorenz Larkin. Plus top welterweight Tyron Woodley looks to move up the ladder, but must first get by Jordan Mein.
The event begins tomorrow night at 8PM EST on Showtime Extreme with a handful of preliminary fights, with the main card going live at 10PM EST.
Before the fighters can step into the cage though, they first had to step on the scale to make things official.
