Strikeforce will visit Ohio on March 5th with another two of the promotion’s champions defending their titles.
Headlining the card will be Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavalcante as he makes his first light-heavyweight title defense against Dan Henderson.
Both men currently have some momentum behind them, with Feijao ripping through ‘King Mo’ to claim the belt last year, while Henderson finally got his Strikeforce career on track with a first round KO win over ‘Babalu’ so this definitely has the makings of an exciting fight.
The Woman’s 135lb title will also be on the line in Ohio, with recently crowned champion Marloes Coenen taking on Meisha Tate in what looks like being one of the biggest fights in female MMA this year.
Middleweight contenders Tim Kennedy and Melvin Manhoef have also been drafted in to fight, ensuring that this card will have strength in depth.
Finally, Strikeforce Challengers regular Billy Evangelista will look to continue his 12 fight unbeaten run against the always tough Jorge Masdival.
