September 10th Strikeforce Event shaping up with new additions to the fight cardPosted on July 19, 2011, 06:25 PM by Joey Santosus
Aside from some slight shuffling in light of Alistair Overeem's removal from the card, Strikeforce's September 10th event has continued to take form in recent days with the confirmation of several exciting match-ups. Highlighting the stacked card will be the Heavyweight Grand Prix semfinal bouts, the first of which features Daniel Cormier, who steps in as an alternate for Overeem to take on Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, while the other pits Josh Barnett against Sergei Kharitonov. Also lined-up is a Middleweight title clash between division Champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza and challenger Luke Rockhold and a Light Heavyweight showdown between former champ Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal and undefeated prospect Roger Gracie.
While a venue has not yet been selected for the still untitled event, all of the action will go down live Saturday, September 10th on Showtime.
Below is a look at the line-up as it stands now:
Welterweight bout: Evangelista Santos vs. Jordan Mein
Light Heavyweight bout: Mike Kyle vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima
