Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold has his next challenger scheduled, and it isn’t Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza like most expected. Rockhold and Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker had publicly discussed the rematch. Gilberto Faria, Jacare’s manager was unsure why the rematch was ultimately dismissed, informing MMAFighting.com that “Jacare” was 100% healthy and only needed 8-to-10 weeks for a training camp.
Rockhold will defend his belt opposite Lorenz Larkin on a November 3 Strikeforce card. Seeming to be a co-main event to a heavyweight battle between Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir. This fight card is shaping up.
