Report: Smith re-signs with Strikeforce, bout coming soon

Veteran slugger Scott Smith (16-6) has signed a new contract with Strikeforce and will be competing on the yet-to-be announced December show. The show will take place at the HP Pavilion on either Dec. 5 or Dec. 12. Both dates have been secured with the California State Athletic Commission.

The report comes courtesy of Ariel Helwani at MMA Fanhouse, who confirmed the news today with Smith’s agent Mike Roberts.

Smith’s opponent is unknown at this time, but the fighter has expressed interest in both facing Frank Shamrock or a potential rematch with Benji Radach. Smith earned a knockout win over Radach on the main card of “Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz”, but Radach has contested that the stoppage was early.
