Strikeforce: Marquardt vs Saffiedine

January 12th, 2013

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Chesapeake Energy Arena


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.

Last time out, Ed Herman lost a unanimous decision to Jake Shields at UFC 150, but the Colorado commission overturned the result after Shields tested positive for a banned substance. So Herman’s three-fight win streak is still intact, which includes stoppage victories over Tim Creduer, Kyle Noke, and Clifford Starks.
