According to a report by MMAjunkie.com, rising Strikeforce prospect Bobby Green has been forced to pull out of a planned bout with Alonzo Martinez for this coming Saturday night due to an injury. Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine takes place January 7 on Showtime.
The Green-Martinez fight was slated for the prelims portion of the card, which will be presented live on Showtime Extreme. A replacement for Martinez is being worked on by Strikeforce officials.
Green holds a career mark of 17-5, including two wins in his three Strikeforce fights. He was looking for his third straight victory since a loss to Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante.
Martinez, if another fight is lined up, will make his debut with the fight promotion. In the night’s main event, Luke Rockhold defends his Strikeforce middleweight title against Keith Jardine.
