Last month, MMA Fighting first reported that Strikeforce had hoped for a one-night middleweight title tournament to be held at its Aug. 21 card in Houston, but the Texas commission's rules put a stop to that plan.

Instead, the promotion set a middleweight title fight for the same night between Tim Kennedy and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza to crown a champion in the division after Jake Shields vacated the belt by leaving for the UFC.

Benji are you serious!?
When you have major talent like Hendo, Misaki, Diaz, Manhoef. It' pretty clear to me who should be in it. But Benji and Lindland? Yikes. I have alot of respect for Matt, but its clear if I was running Strikeforce who I would put in the tourny.
My question is, why in the world they are doing a 4 man, rather then an 8 man. If anything, it would help with ratings ,and draw in some more fans.
