An intriguing welterweight matchup between fast-rising prospect Jordan Mein (23-7 MMA, 1-0 SF) and undefeated contender Tyron Woodley (9-0 MMA, 7-0 SF) has been added to January's "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine" event.

Strikeforce officials today announced the new booking.

Featuring a middleweight title fight between champion Luke Rockhold and UFC vet Keith Jardine, "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine" takes place Jan. 7 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The night's main card, including Mein vs. Woodley, airs on Showtime.

A former collegiate wrestler at the University of Missouri, Woodley turned to American Top Team to help guide his entrance into MMA. The results have been impressive to date with Woodley rattling off nine-straight wins to open his professional career.

Woodley most recently fought at July's Strikeforce and M-1 Global co-promoted event, where "T-Wood" earned a decision win over dangerous slugger Paul Daley. Woodley also has defeated Tarec Saffiedine and Andre Galvao, among others, during his current run.

Meanwhile, Canadian youngster Mein, just 21 years old, makes his second appearance under the Strikeforce banner. "Young Gun" debuted for the promotion in September and registered a TKO win over Brazilian slugger Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos. Mein currently is riding a six-fight win streak and is 10-1 in his past 11 overall fights.

I like Mein, he had that good fight with Cyborg during the summer, but I don't see him beating Woodley here. Woodley should just be able to use his wrestling to win by decision.

I may be the only one, but I can't stand Woodley. I'd rather watch paint dry. Seeing him fight live against Paul Daley only reinforced that, and his mother's god-awful incessant chants of "Kill that fake n#$!?r" and "Send his ass back to British land!" didn't quite help.

You are! Woodley`s the man plus his Momma is the best hype girl in the sport! Woodley will win this one by decision.

Damn. I'm a big fan of Mein and I want him to win this one but I really don't see it happening.

Mein has been jumping the rankings fast. It will be a nice fight to watch but to pick who will win will take some thought.
