SAN JOSE, Calif. - While light-heavyweight free agent Tito Ortiz garnered the most attention outside the cage at Saturday night's "Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz," it was another UFC veteran that left the event a Strikeforce employee.
Twelve-plus-year-veteran Kevin Randleman (17-12) was announced as the latest signing for Strikeforce at the post-event press conference at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.
"Thank you very much for the opportunity to come back and show everybody that I'm not done yet," Randleman said. "Far from it."
Specifics of the contract were not announced, but Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said he hopes to have Randleman fight right away.
"We have an announcement soon, so you'll have to wait until next week," Coker said. "But we're going to try and put him in the rotation right away. There's going to be some great fights in the future for Kevin, and we're excited."
