Matt Lindland was last seen losing to Vitor Belfort via knockout in just 37 seconds at "Affliction: Day of Reckoning" in January. Since then, his name has come up as a potential opponent for several young middleweights, but nothing every materialized.

Another quality addition by Strikeforce. I never could understand why Lindland hasnt stayed busier.

Rematch, but this time there aren't ropes to grab.

How about this fall:

Fedor Emeilenko vs Alistair Overeem
Frank Shamrock vs Matt Lindland
Jake Sheilds vs Ronaldo Souza
Brett Rogers vs Gilbert Yvel
Joe Riggs vs Andre Galvao


That would be a sweet card and is possible

I'd be very interested to see how Shields would fight a superior grappler.

Matt Lindland has finally awoken after getting demolished by Vitor Belfort huh? I thought he'd never wake up. Decent signing by Strikeforce. The guys not very exciting to watch though.

This is what Strikeforce needs to keep doing, grow that talent pool. It will validate it's title belts, that will intice more fighters to sign. The more quality fighters, and match ups, the more the audience will grow. The Strikeforce org is making the right moves.

Ive never seen an entertaining Linland fight... apart from when he gets KO'd.
