Add Luke Rockhold To November Strikeforce Event, No Opponent Determined Yet

Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold will compete for a third time since claiming the belt this November, according to a report by MMAWeekly.com.

Rockhold will fight on the same November 3 card from Oklahoma that will feature heavyweights Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir. No opponent for Rockhold has been determined.

The card will air on Showtime, though it is unknown if Rockhold or the Cormier-Mir fight will be the main event.

Rockhold, who has defeated Keith Jardine and Tim Kennedy, is rumored to be facing former champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza. Rockhold earned the title with a decision victory over Souza last year.
