Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold took one step forward in defending his title for the first time against UFC veteran Keith Jardine, who was making his middleweight debut in the main event of Strikeforce's latest offering on Showtime.
Rockhold won his title last year after defeating Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza. It placed him among the very best at 185 pounds.
In a middleweight bout, Robbie Lawler and Lorenz Larkin fought in an anticipated matchup that may have produced a potential title challenger in the division.
Other fighters on the main card include Muhammed Lawal, Tyron Woodley and Tarec Saffiedine. This is what's next for the winners.
