Luke Rockhold Out; Melvin Manhoef Expected to Face Tim Kennedy at Strikeforce: Columbus

MMA Junkie Reports:

http://mmajunkie.com/news/22329/kennedy-likely-to-meet-manhoef-not-rockhold-at-strikeforce-feijao-vs-henderson.mma

Melvin Manhoef

24-8-1 MMA/ 0-1 Strikeforce Record

2 Fight Losing Streak

– Notable Wins: Kazuo Misaki, Mark Hunt, Kazushi Sakuraba

Tim Kennedy

– 12-3-0 MMA/ 3-1 Strikeforce Record

– Won 4 of last 5 Fights

– Notable Wins: Trevor Prangley, Josh Thompson, Jason “Mayhem” Miller

———————————————————————–

Due to an apparent leg injury, Luke Rockhold has been forced out of his announced fight with Tim Kennedy. Instead, Kennedy will meet Dutch kick-boxer Melvin Manhoef. Originally Kennedy was slotted to face Jason “Mayhem” Miller, but was later announced that Rockhold would be his opponent. Strikeforce: Columbus takes place on March 5th at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Melvin Manhoef looks to snap a current two-fight losing streak. He made his Strikeforce debut in January of last year against Robbie Lawler. Manhoef got off to an early start hurting Lawler with strikes, but when Manhoef went in for the finish, Lawler KO’d him with a vicious right hand to the jaw for the dramatic comeback victory. Manhoef then went to Japan to compete in DREAM’s light heavyweight tournament, but was upset by Tatsuya Mizuno in the first round.

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.

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.

——————————————————————————–

Tim Kennedy and Jason “Mayhem” Miller are expected to meet for the third time in their careers at Strikeforce: Columbus. The event is scheduled to take place March 5th at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Tim Kennedy looks to get back on the right track after losing a hard fought unanimous decision to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in a fight that was for the Strikeforce middleweight title. The loss to Jacare snapped a four-fight win streak that went back to December of 2007.

Jason “Mayhem” Miller is fresh off an emotional victory over his childhood idol, Kazushi Sakuraba at DREAM 16 in September of last year. The win was Miller’s second consecutive victory, also beating Tim Stout with a first round TKO at Strikeforce: Nashville.

Tim Kennedy defeated “Mayhem” Miller in their first bout back in 2003 by unanimous decision, but “Mayhem” got his revenge in the rematch, earning a decision victory over Kennedy at DREAM 8 in 2008.
