Strikeforce adds Coenen-Tate, Gracie-Lawal To July Event

Showtime officials today announced a pair of new contests for July’s “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson” event, as women’s welterweight champion Marloes Coenen meets top contender Miesha Tate, and Roger Gracie faces Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal in a light heavyweight affair.

Both fights take place on the evening’s main card.

However, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned that a third bout announced today, a middleweight title fight between Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Luke Rockhold, was announced prematurely and will likely take place at a later date.

Featuring a main event between former PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko and current Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson, “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson” takes place July 30 at Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Ill. The main card airs on Showtime.
