The upcoming Strikeforce Fighting Championship mixed martial arts show has a new main event and a new web site to boot.
An injury to Kevin Randleman has forced him to withdraw from his fight with Vitor Belfort. This had been scheduled as the main event for their next show on Friday, June 9, at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. Now Belfort will be facing Alistair Overeem, a regular in Pride. This fight is actually a rematch, as on April 23 of last year, Overeem defeated Belfort in Pride by a guillotine choke at 9:36 of the first round.
More information is on the Strikeforce press release, which we have also posted on the Combat Sports News.
And you can also check out their new web site, at http://www.strikeforceusa.net/ , which includes information on how to order tickets for this event.
