A middleweight title fight between champion Luke Rockhold (9-1 MMA, 8-0 SF) and Tim Kennedy (14-3 MMA, 5-1 SF) will headline a major Strikeforce show in Oregon.

Strikeforce officials today announced the event, which takes place July 14 at the Rose Garden in Portland, Ore.

Other announced bouts include middleweights Lorenz Larkin (12-0 MMA, 3-0 SF) vs. Robbie Lawler (19-8 MMA, 3-4 SF) and middleweights Roger Gracie (4-1 MMA, 2-1 SF) vs. Keith Jardine (17-10-2 MMA, 0-1-1 SF).

The night's main card airs on Showtime, and Showtime Extreme carries the prelims.

Despite today's announcements, an expected welterweight title fight between Nate Marquardt (31-10-2 MMA, 0-0 SF) and Tyron Woodley (10-0 MMA, 8-0 SF) wasn't mentioned.

I was wondering when Kennedy was fighting again. Should be a good title fight.

Rockhold belongs in the UFC.

I'd say the same about Kennedy.

Great job by Strikeforce by utilizing their resources. I second the hopes of Marquardt and Woodley making this card.

they have a nice pool of mws in sf, at least 4 who could come right over.
i dont care for kennedy at all. I dont like his attitude or how he fights...or his post fight bs either. On the other hand, i am a huge rockhold fan and i think he has great aptitude. I wanted to see rock vs silva before chael put away bizz. Perhaps a unifying title fight in the future if he beats kennedy.
