Strikeforce announced that, for the second time in as many months, they would be cancelling a planned card.
The November 3 Strikeforce event from Oklahoma City was axed on Friday, and both Luke Rockhold and Tim Kennedy took to Twitter to discuss the matter.
Rockhold was originally set to face Lorenz Larkin at the card, but it was reported several weeks ago that he would miss the fight with a wrist injury suffered in training. He confirmed that news on the social media site Friday.
So @strikeforce nov 3rd cancelation finally announced sorry bout that one guys! I should b healthy and ready to go for Jan.

Kennedy, meanwhile, was slated for action vs. Trevor Smith.
Thank you @strikeforce for letting me read about my flight being canceled on the Internet. I was 9 weeks into my fight camp. Awesome!
