An original scheduled fight between Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller and Tim Kennedy has been scratched. Instead, the Army veteran will meet top middleweight prospect Luke Rockhold at Strikeforce: Columbus. The event takes place on March 5th at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
Tim Kennedy started his Strikeforce career with three consecutive victories, including wins over Nick Thompson and Trevor Prangley. The streak earned him a shot at the vacant middleweight title against Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza, but lost a closely contested unanimous decision.
Luke Rockhold is considered one of the best prospects at 185-pounds. He is currently on a six-fight win streak, including victories over Paul Bradley and UFC veteran, Jesse Taylor. Rockhold has been apart of Strikeforce’s Challengers series for his last three bouts, but makes the jump to the big shows to face Kennedy.
