A few upcoming Strikeforce match-ups were revealed in the past few days. Here’s a quick rundown…
— Strikeforce announced today that middleweights Robbie Lawler and Tim Kennedy would on next month’s Strikeforce “Fedor vs. Henderson” card. Lawler most recently lost to Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza back in January after Kennedy lost to Jacare last year when they fought for the then vacant middleweight title. Kennedy has picked up a win since against Melvin Manhoef — who Lawler also beat in a thrilling fight last year — so he’ll have a little more momentum on his side when they meet next month.
— A women’s welterweight match-up between Alexis Davis and Julie Kedzie has also been booked for Strikeforce “Fedor vs. Henderson.”
— Gegard Mousasi vs. Mike Kyle is possible for Strikeforce’s September card, according to MMA Junkie. The pair were originally scheduled to fight in April at “Diaz vs. Daley”, but Kyle withdrew a few weeks out with a broken hand. While Kyle can focus solely on preparing for Mousasi over the next few months, Mousasi has a fight scheduled in DREAM between now and then against Hiroshi Izumi.
