Pat Healy (28-16 MMA, 6-1 SF) once again has an opponent for Strikeforce's final show.

Sources close to the event on Monday told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Jorge Masvidal (23-7 MMA, 5-1 SF) has filled a slot left vacant by the injury withdrawal of lightweight champ Gilbert Melendez.

"Strikeforce: Champions" takes place Jan. 12 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

I think they need to change the name of the event...

Liking this fight. Seems like a tough match up for Healy though if he can't get it to the ground. It seems like Masvidal has only been losing to great strikers lately and wouldn't be surprised if he pulled out the W here.
