Melvin Manhoef Signs With Strikeforce



Quote:

Strikeforce just added arguably the hardest hitting middleweight in the world to their roster.

MMA and kickboxing veteran Melvin Manhoef has signed a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce. FanHouse learned of the agreement Wednesday morning.

Manhoef, who most recently lost to Paulo Filho at DREAM.10 in July, will now be exclusive to Strikeforce when he fights in the United States. The deal still allows for him to compete for other organizations overseas.

The press release says this a multi-year agreement with Strikeforce. When and where Manhoef will debut for the organization is up in the air. Robbie Lawler still needs an opponent for Strikeforce “Evolution” and Manhoef’s name is apparently on the short list, but his commitments overseas may prevent him from coming stateside in December. Trevor Prangley is also a leading candidate to face Lawler on Dec. 19.

Mahoef is definitely an exciting addition to the Strikeforce roster. He’s a little one-dimensional, but man when he hits people they drop like they’ve just been shot with a .44 Magnum. Potential fights with Robbie Lawler, Scott Smith and Cung Le should have you drooling.

Manhoef v Cung Le could be very interesting... nice roster they're building.

DEFINITELY love Cung Le vs Manhoef. Infact, I even love the idea of Hendo vs Manhoef - let's say Hendo wants to make a good impression by KO'ing him and turns it into a slugfest!


Gotta quote Mousasi here though:

"When I was going to fight Manhoef, they said 'Don't stand and trade with him!' But I said, 'Maybe he shouldn't stand and trade with me?'"

Yeah Mousasi's a beast though, then he subbed him with a triangle!

Melvin VS Cung would be very interesting, I don't think we've seen Cung against someone as explosive as Manhoef. That could present serious problems.

Yeah, Le hasn't fought someone quality yet so we would have to see how that fight goes.
