Strikeforce Returns on September 29th with Gilbert Melendez Defending The Lightweight Title Against Pat Healy on Showtime!
Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez (21-2) will defend his championship and also try to extend his seven fight winning streak when he steps into the cage against Pat Healy (28-16) on September 29th at the Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento, California.
“There’s no doubt that Gilbert Melendez is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, but he’s facing a tough test when he defends the Strikeforce lightweight title against Pat Healy in Sacramento,” Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker stated. “Pat has been around the sport a long time and has put together an impressive winning streak. This is the biggest fight of his life and he doesn’t want to waste this opportunity.”
The co-main event will feature recently crowned Strikeforce World Grand Prix Heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier's first fight since upsetting Josh Barnett in the finals of the torunament, as he looks to keep his unbeaten streak alive. Cormier's opponent has not been announced, but the promotion has promised to release that information in the next few days. .
