Luke Rockhold-Tim Kennedy Official For July 14 From Portland

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker confirmed Luke Rockhold’s next defense of his Strikeforce middleweight title, as Rockhold will face Tim Kennedy at the next Strikeforce event in July.

Rockhold-Kennedy will be the main event from Portland, Oregon, with the main card likely airing on Showtime.

Rockhold secured the belt from Ronaldo Souza last year, defending it against Keith Jardine in his first title defense.

Kennedy was scheduled to face Rockhold instead of Jardine, but an elbow injury knocked him out of the bout. Now, he is nearing full health and ready to get back inside the cage.
