Gegard Mousasi Expected To Return For December Strikeforce Event

September 5, 2011 3:13 pm by Pedro Carrasco

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Gegard Mousasi is staying busy both stateside and internationally, as he’s being targeted for a December return to the Strikeforce cage.  The news was confirmed by a source to earlier today.

Gegard Mousasi last competed for Strikeforce in April where he fought to a majority draw against UFC veteran Keith Jardine.  Jardine had stepped in on short notice for the injured Mike Kyle in a bout that was expected to decide who the number one contender for the Strikeforce light heavyweight title would be. The majority draw was the result of an illegal upkick in the first round, as Mousasi was winning the fight on the judges scorecards prior to the point deduction.

No opponent, date or location has been named for the December 17th Strikeforce event, but without a doubt Mousasi will be looking to continue his win streak, as he’s already rebounded with a TKO victory over Hiroshi Izumi at the Dream event this past July.
