Luke Rockhold Pulls Out Of Final Strikeforce Title Defense Against Lorenz Larkin | MMA NEWS
Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold has been forced to withdraw due to a nagging wrist injury.
The show was dubbed “Strikeforce: Champions” but with the loss of Gilbert Melendez earlier in the month and now Rockhold, the champions on the roster are thinning at a rapid rate.
The champion was scheduled to face division standout, Lorenz Larkin in the final Strikeforce cards co-main event until the bout received a bump up to main when Gilbert Melendez bowed out of his fight against Pat Healy.
Since his 2008 debut with the promotion Rockhold has gone 9-0 including two successful title defenses.
