This Saturday night on Showtime‘s “Free Preview Weekend,” Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold will make his first title defense against “Ultimate Fighter 2″ alumni Keith “Dean of Mean” Jardine. It’s the company’s first event for 2012 and first event since re-upping their contract with Showtime. Now, does this main event seem a little odd considering Jardine hasn’t even had a fight at Middleweight for Strikeforce? Yes. Even the champion didn’t think Jardine was on the title radar but with wins over Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffen, Rockhold will gladly take the fight. Also on the card “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler and “King Mo” Lawal. Check out these previews of Saturday’s event courtesy of SHO Sports and The Fight Network.
