The show is all set to go down this Saturday in Ohio, USA, with Strikeforce serving up one of the most promising cards of all times. There are heavyweight GP semifinal fights, a title bout between Ronaldo Jacaré and Luke Rockhold, and a showdown between Roger Gracie and King Mo, a former light heavyweight champion of the event.
In the GP semifinals, there will be no lack of excitement as Josh Barnett squares off with Sergio Kharitanov and Antonio Bigfoot taking on Daniel Cormier, who steps in to take the place of Alistair Overeem, who is now scheduled to face Brock Lesnar in the UFC.
Still on the main card. Ronaldo Jacaré will defend his middleweight title against Luke Rockhold. Now Roger Gracie will be looking to hang on to his unbeaten record against King Mo Lawal. To add even more spice to the mix, former champion Rafael Feijão will have his work cut out for him against Yoel Romero, while Evangelista Cyborg tests his mettle against Jordan Mein and fast-rising up-and-comer Amanda Nunes faces off with Alexis Davis.
