Gegard Mousasi and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou have agreed to meet in a light heavyweight non-title bout at Strikeforce “Fedor vs. Rogers” on Nov. 7 at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffmann Estates, Ill., Sherdog.com has confirmed through multiple sources.
If approved by the Illinois Boxing Commission, the three-round bout will be one of four fights televised live on CBS during the promotion’s debut on the major broadcast network.
Mousasi earned the Strikeforce light heavyweight title with a first-round technical knockout over Renato “Babalu” Sobral at Strikeforce “Carano vs. Cyborg” on Aug. 15 in San Jose, Calif. The bout was the 24-year-old Armenian-Dutch fighter’s first at 205 pounds, as well as his debut fight in the U.S.
Mousasi was the Dream middleweight champion before he relinquished his title to move up a weight division. More Mousassi means more gooder show!
