Luke Rockhold will finally defend his Strikeforce middleweight title against Tim Kennedy this Saturday night in the main event of Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy. The main card airs on Showtime, while the prelims are live on Showtime Extreme.
Rockhold (9-1) was set to meet Kennedy earlier this year, but Kennedy (14-3) was forced out with an injury. Instead, Rockhold downed Keith Jardine. The win came at a price, however, as Rockhold suffered a broken hand, pushing the match back once again.
In other action, Tyron Woodley and Nate Marquardt will meet for the vacant Strikeforce welterweight title. As always, FightLine will have complete coverage of the entire event from Portland, Oregon.
