Undisputed KOTC lightweight champion Bobby Green is headed to Strikeforce.
The high-energy fighter, who owns a 15-4 pro record and four victories in his past five fights, has signed a four-fight deal with Strikeforce.
Jason House of Iridium Sports Agency today confirmed the signing with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), though terms of the deal were not disclosed.
A debut date and opponent have not been determined.
Green, a three-and-a-half-year pro, has spent much of his career with KOTC, though he's also made appearances with Affliction and Tachi Palace Fights. The 24-year-old, who trains with Pinnacle Jiu jitsu and MMA in California, owns seven knockouts and six submissions in 15 career victories.

Man, Strikeforce is signing everyone today! Next they'll sign Nate Marquardt
I honestly hope that once the current Strikeforce contracts are done, they keep the organization around. I never would have said that before Zuffa bought it out... But since they have, I like the way things are going. I also like the thought of a feeder league.
It could be like baseball! You get signed by Zuffa. Some prospects go straight to the majors (UFC), and others cut their teeth in the minors (Strikeforce). I feel a lot of good things could happen if it's done that way...

Green vs Blanco would be a fun fight.
Little known fact, Green is the only guy to KO krazy horse
