Fast-rising Olympic judoka-turned-mixed martial arts fighter Ronda Rousey will challenge Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate on March 3rd. With just 4-0 bouts under her belt, Rousey finds herself in title contention, taking on Tate, one of WMMA's most experienced fighters.
The rest of this ticket presents a list of heavy hitters. Gegard Mousasi comes off of a win over Ovince St. Preux. He will now take on a much bigger challenge in Mike Kyle, who has lost in two of his last nine outings, which includes a TKO loss to Antonio Silva in a match that he very much dominated in the first round.
Jacare returns from to the Strikeforce cage to meet undefeated Derek Brunson (9-0). In his last bout, Jacare lost the Strikeforce Middleweight Title to Luke Rockhold via decision.
