With their Showtime deal renewed beginning in 2012, Strikeforce has a great deal to be excited about. This weekend, there’s a big, big show for them as well, as one of the last champions standing, Strikeforce Lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez, will face number one contender Jorge Masvidal in what could very well be a barn burner. Also on the card, Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, who battles Hiroko Yamanaka in his first Strikeforce battle since June of 2010.
Watch the preview video above and don’t forget to watch (or DVR!) this card, which should be pretty fun.
