Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy quick results

Strikeforce returned to Showtime tonight with a double-championship affair at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy.

In the main event, Luke Rockhold and Tim Kennedy finally met after having a pair of bouts axed due to injuries suffered by both fighters. The title defense was the second for Rockhold, who defeated Keith Jardine earlier this year.
