Strikeforce returns with an action-packed night of fights on Saturday, live from Columbus, Ohio, and the time for the talking is now officially over.
Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion Miesha "Takedown" Tate contests her gold against the undefeated 4-0 record of undefeated Judoka and No. 1 challenger "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey, with a co-headliner of KJ Noons vs. Josh Thomson in what will likely result in the winner challenging Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez.
Also in action are Paul "Semtex" Daley and Kazuo Misaki, both of whom have their eye on Strikeforce welterweight gold, as well as former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza's welcoming of Bristol Marunde into the Strikeforce cage, Lumumba Sayers taking on Scott Smith and an undercard topped off by a women's bantamweight title eliminator between Alexis Davis and former champion Sarah Kaufman.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, without further interruptions, Bleacher Report MMA presents its live and unfiltered coverage of Strikeforce 39: Tate vs. Rousey and Noons vs. Thomson. Updates will be added below as things develop.
