Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza (10-2) vs. Matt "The Law" Linland (21-6)
Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal (5-0) vs Mike Whitehead (24-7)
Robbie Lawler (16-5) vs TBA

The stakes will be high when STRIKEFORCE closes out a spectacular 2009 with the return of one of the most prolific and exciting fighters in Mixed Martial Arts - unbeaten former STRIKEFORCE world middleweight champion Cung Le, who will face Scott "Hands of Steel" Smith in the main event of a star-studded lineup at HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA. on Saturday, Dec. 19, on SHOWTIME.

Joining Le (6-0) and Smith (16-6) will be three other outstanding and widely recognized 185-pound stalwarts, "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler (16-5), Matt "The Law" Lindland (21-6) and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza (10-2) as well as light heavyweight star (205 pounds) Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal (5-0) going up against Mike Whitehead (24-7). Lindland will face Souza in what represents both fighters' STRIKEFORCE debuts. Opponent for Lawler, whose start will also be his first with STRIKEFORCE, will be announced soon.

If they want to keep getting bigger, why is Strikeforce not putting this on CBS.

I agree!!!! Dumb for nothing doing that. I mean maybe CBS has other plans but if they don;t this is just a bad loss a oppurtunity. Minus Fedor, this card IMO is alot more exciting looking then the last one. Theres going to be some exciting finishes in this one.

Also Gilbert-Thompson 2 should be insane! Why are they not on the poster?

Anyone know where I'll be able to catch this live. Don't wanna watch it on my cpu. I doubt too many bars will be showing this. Though I hope I am wrong.

This is looking to be an exciting card, really looking forward to watching this saturday. I think Strikeforce is doing a good job keeping their cards stacked with what they have in there roster, dont you?

yes. they are putting on better cards then the ufc imo. the fights are well thought up exciting matchups in strikeforce while still mantaining an order ie title contention. ufc has more fighters but we are getting things like tito and griffin 2 as a main event which wasnt even appealing to me. strikeforce is going places quickly cant wait to see where they are next year or even six months from now.

They should rename the event "Stacked".


Strikeforce is defenintly building steam and I think this will be another testiment to that.

They probably have to in order to fulfill contractual obligations with Showtime.

Showtime and CBS are both divisions under the same CBS Corporate umbrella, so it's all in the same house. I'm sure ya'll already know that Strikeforce's option with CBS is most likely going to turn into a CBS broadcast in April .

As a funny twist of fate, the current CBS Corporation is a spin off of Viacom which owns Spike. They remain majority shareholders. So in a sense Sumner Redstone has a monopoly on all MMA in the US.
