They made the full card official, pretty nice hope it holds up til March:

The lineup, including the preliminary and main cards, is set for next month's "Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey" event.

The show takes place March 3 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

The main card, including a title fight between female bantamweight champion Miesha Tate (12-2 MMA, 5-1 SF) and Ronda Rousey (4-0 MMA, 2-0 SF), airs on Showtime. Prelims air on Showtime Extreme.

Tate and Rousey join Gina Carano and Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos as the only female headliners of a major Strikeforce card. (Sarah Kuafman and Takayo Hashi also headlined a smaller Strikeforce Challengers card in early 2010.)

Also slated for the event, which is Strikeforce's second in Columbus, are main-card matchups of light heavyweights Mike Kyle (19-8-1 MMA, 3-3-1 SF) vs. Gegard Mousasi (32-3-2 MMA, 3-1-1 SF), lightweights K.J. Noons (11-4 MMA, 3-2 SF) vs. Josh Thomson (18-4 MMA, 9-2 SF), welterweights Paul Daley (29-11-2 MMA, 1-2 SF) vs. Kazuo Misaki (24-11-2 MMA, 1-0 SF), and middleweights Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza (14-3 MMA, 4-1 SF) vs. Derek Brunson (9-0 MMA, 3-0 SF).

Prelims include female bantamweights Alexis Davis (11-4 MMA, 2-0 SF) vs. Sarah Kaufman (14-1 MMA, 5-1 SF), lightweights Caros Fodor (7-1 MMA, 5-0 SF) vs. Pat Healy (26-16 MMA, 4-1 SF), middleweights Scott Smith (17-9 MMA, 3-4 SF) vs. Lumumba Sayers (5-2 MMA, 1-1 SF), and lightweights Conor Heun (9-4 MMA, 1-2 SF) vs. Ryan Couture (3-1 MMA, 3-1 SF).
