Strikeforce: Rockhold vs Kennedy B/R MMA Staff Predictions

Have you had enough MMA action in that last week? Neither have we! Saturday night, a pair of world-title fights will take place under the Strikeforce banner, along with some other key matchups in the UFC's sister organization.

In the night's main event, two criminally underrated middleweights Luke Rockhold and Tim Kennedy will battle for the Strikeforce Middleweight Championship. Rockhold will look to defend his championship for the second time, while Kennedy is hoping to do better in his second bid for glory.

The co-main event of the evening features a welterweight-championship bout between undefeated standout Tyron Woodley and former UFC contender Nate Marquardt. This will be Marquardt's first fight at 170 pounds, although the lack of star power in Strikeforce suggests that he is the most worthy challenger for the vacant championship.

Also on the card is a matchup between Robbie Lawler and Lorenz Larkin. By pitting two heavy-handed strikers against each other, Showtime viewers are sure to see a big knockout.

Keith Jardine returns to action in search for his first win in a major organization since a 2008 split decision against Brandon Vera. He takes on newly middleweight Roger Gracie.

This time around, we highlight the predictions of B/R Featured Columnists Dwight Wakabayashi, Mark Pare, John Heinis and Andrew Saunders.

Here are the B/R Staff Predictions for Strikeforce: Rockhold vs Kennedy.
