Strikeforce has confirmed that Alistair Overeem will be defending the Heavyweight title against Fabricio Werdum as part of the tournament.
Strikeforce has confirmed ESPN report Shane Del Rosario will meet Lavar Johnson in a Heavyweight tournament reserve bout on February 12.
Strikeforce confirms the Heavyweight title will be defended throughout the tournament.Title tilts will be 5 rounds, other bouts 3 rounds.
That is great news if it pans out. Although Overeem and Werdum are arguably the top two seeds, so it's a bit strange that they'd fight in the first round.
