Strikeforce: Champions

January 12th, 2013

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Chesapeake Energy Arena

——————————————————————

Tim Kennedy looks to rebound from his second failed attempt at winning Strikeforce gold, when he lost a unanimous decision to Luke Rockhold back in July. The loss snapped a two-fight winning streak, which consisted of victories over Melvin Manhoef and Robbie Lawler.

Trevor Smith drops to middleweight for the first time in Strikeforce after going 2-1 in the light heavyweight division. He started off his Strikeforce career with two straight submission victories over Keith Berry and TJ Cook, but then was stopped in the first round by Gian Villante by TKO. Most recently, Smith took a fight outside of Strikeforce, defeating Alexandre Moreno by first round guillotine choke.
