Strikeforce: Champions

January 12th, 2013

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Chesapeake Energy Arena


Lorenz Larkin was successful in his middleweight debut, defeating veteran Robbie Lawler in a surprisingly one-sided decision at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs Kennedy. The win continued his undefeated streak in his young MMA career, which also includes decision victories against Gian Villante and Nick Rossborough.

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion, Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza has won back-to-back contests, since losing his title to Luke Rockhold in September of last year. Souza defeated Bristol Marunde in the third round with a arm-triangle choke, then followed that victory with a 41-second knockout win over Derek Brunson at Strikeforce: Rousey vs Kaufman.
