Henderson/Melendez and Cormier/Mir now confirmed for UFC on FOX 7 in San Jose
Two of the biggest names in Strikeforce history will make their move to the UFC on Saturday, April 20, with FOX airing both bouts live from San Jose.
In the main event, UFC lightweight boss "Smooth" Benson Henderson will defend his belt for the third time when he takes on Strikeforce's last 155-pound titlist, Gilbert "El Nino" Melendez, in a clash of champions the entire MMA world has been waiting for.
Plus, Daniel Cormier, the Strikeforce Grand Prix heavyweight tournament winner, will return to action quickly after his win over Dion Staring last Saturday to battle two-time heavyweight champ Frank Mir in a long-anticipated showdown.
Still think Cormier should just go to LHW right away if the plan is for him to challenge Jones for the belt but this still is a good fight. I was looking forward to it when it was first announced for Strikeforce and it'll help Cormier build his name.
