Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold will make his first title defense this Saturday night when he takes on Keith Jardine in the main event of Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine. The show will be broadcast live on Showtime.
Rockhold claimed the title with a decision victory over Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in 2011, improving his MMA record to 8-1.
Showtime, which recently signed a new deal with Strikeforce and Zuffa to continue being the home of Strikeforce, talked with Rockhold about what has helped drive him to succeed in such a short amount of time.
