The line-up is taking shape for StrikeForce’s second MMA show, which will take place on June 9th at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. As previously announced, the main event of this show will be Kevin Randleman vs. Vitor Belfort.
In addition to the main event, MMAWeekly has learned of two other fights that are expected to take place on the card, pending approval from the California State Athletic Commission.
Duane “Bang” Ludwig will be taking on undefeated rising prospect Tyson Griffin in a lightweight fight. Griffin will be putting his undefeated record on the line against Ludwig, who is coming off two impressive quick KO victories.
Additionally, James “Sandman” Irvin and Bobby Southworth, both of whom are UFC veterans, will be squaring off in a fight that both fighters desperately need to win. Southworth is coming off a loss to Sam Hoger last year, while Irvin is taking his third fight since March 17th of this year.
StrikeForce is putting together a very impressive fight card, and more details are expected in the coming days. Check back with MMAWeekly for all the details in our continuing coverage of the event.
