Luke Rockhold Will Look to Make a Statement this November

Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold will be on the November event from Oklahoma, according to a report by MMAWeekly.com. The card, which is set for November 3, will feature Daniel Cormier vs. Frank Mir.

Mir is the first UFC fighter to come over to Strikeforce and compete for the promotion while under contract with the UFC. Cormier claimed the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix title, and is expected to join Mir in the UFC following the fight.

Rockhold, who recently defeated Tim Kennedy in his second successful title defense, is expected to face Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza. Rockhold won the belt from Souza last year via decision.

The card will air on Showtime, with the prelims being televised live by Showtime Extreme.
