| by

Lorenz Larkin (13-0-1 NC) might have missed his opportunity twice at the Strikeforce middleweight championship due to injury to champion Luke Rockhold (10-1), but it gave his new opponent a chance to leave an impression. Ronaldo Souza (16-3-1 NC) now takes on Larkin.

"I liked the choice," said Souza to TATAME. "Larkin will be a big challenge for me. I was even more excited for this fight knowing that he would be my opponent."
