Strikeforce’s next show takes place May 19th and is headlined by the finals of their Heavyweight Grand Prix. However, their latest promo might lead some to believe the lightweight title bout between champion Gilbert Melendez (Pictured) and Josh Thomson is the card’s featured attraction.
No need to fret. Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier, who meet in the finals of the HWGP tourney, also appear in the hype video. Former light heavyweight champion Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante collides with Mike Kyle in the lineup’s third-to-last fight.
HP Pavilion in San Jose, California hosts the extravaganza.
Showtime Extreme airs four preliminary bouts beginning at 8PM ET/PT. Showtime will broadcast the card’s four featured fights at 10PM ET/PT.
