This Saturday night (May 19th) sees the conclusion of Strikeforce’s heavyweight grand-prix which airs live on Showtime.

Of course headlining the show is Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier as they fight to establish who’ll be the tournament winner. Whoever is crowned the champion will fight once more for the promotion in 2012 before moving over to join the UFC.

The card also features another major fight as lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez will be attempting to defend his title in a rubber match against old rival Josh Thompson.

Former light-heavyweight champ Rafael ‘Feijao’ will look to avenge an old loss when he takes on Mike Kyle who KO’d him back in 2009 in the Strikeforce cage.

Finally, Nah-Shon Burrell gets his first taste of main card action after racking up a six-fight winning run as he takes on another up-and-comer in Chris Spang.
