Strikeforce on Sunday announced that Duane Ludwig will face Steve Berger at “Strikeforce at the Dome” on Feb. 23 in Tacoma, Wash.
Ludwig is a world champion in Muay Thai and makes his fifth start for Strikeforce coming off of a first round knockout of Mario Stapel at last September’s Ring of Fire event in Broomfield, Colo.
A veteran of the Bodog Fight promotion, Berger is returning from a loss to Diego Gonzalez in August. He is known for his strong submission game and will be looking to try and get back on the winning track against Ludwig.
Strikeforce at the Dome is headlined by a main event of K-1 and Pride veteran Bob Sapp against K-1 kickboxing star Jan Nortje.
In another featured bout, former UFC heavyweight champion Maurice Smith returns to face six-time world kickboxing champion Rick Roufus, who will be making his mixed martial arts debut.
