Strikeforce “Overeem vs. Werdum” is scheduled to take place at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, June 18, and will air on Showtime.

In a pair of heavyweight grand prix reserve bouts Shane del Rosario meets Daniel Cormier while Chad Griggs looks for his third straight Strikeforce win against Valentijn Overeem.

The card will also feature the return of Gina Carano and a light heavyweight bout between Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and Ovince St. Preux.

“We are really excited to head to Dallas with two outstanding quarterfinal heavyweight Grand Prix fights,” Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said. “With Overeem vs. Werdum, Rogers vs. Barnett, as well as the return of Gina Carano, STRIKEFORCE is bringing one of its best cards ever to American Airlines Center.”

The latest Strikeforce “Overeem vs. Werdum” fight card and event info can be found in our fight cards section.

Update: Strikeforce sent out a revised newsletter and poster today that did not include the King Mo vs. Ovince St. Preux fight. Also, the official press release did not include an announcement of the fight. There were reports that King Mo would fight in July, so it looks like that was a mistake on Strikeforce’s part.
