Strikeforce officials on Thursday added a lightweight bout pitting Caros Fodor and Pat “Bam Bam” Healy to the Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey fight card slated for March 3 in Columbus, Ohio.
Fodor (7-1) has been on a tear since arriving in the Strikeforce organization. He has won five consecutive fights for the promotion, capping the streak off with wins over highly touted James Terry and Justin Wilcox in his two most recent bouts.
Healy’s (26-16) only stumble in five Strikeforce bouts was to former lightweight champion Josh Thomson. He has currently won three straight including derailing Lyle Beerbohm and an impressive submission of Maximo Blanco.
Both fighters have been rocketing through the promotion’s lightweight division with the winner of this fight likely putting himself among the immediate contenders to Gilbert Melendez’s lightweight title.
