This marks the second time the fight was scratched. They were set to fight on the last Strikeforce card in November, but Rockhold pulled out with a hand injury. They were to be the co-main event of the January Strikeforce: Champions card with Rockhold’s middleweight championship up for grabs.
Strikeforce is expected to cease operations after the January show. The UFC has not mentioned what fighters they look to absorb into their roster.
