"Mayhem" Miller out/, Luke Rockhold in against Tim Kennedy in Columbus

Quote:
Sorry homies, but it looks like someone was scared to move forward with our previously reported rubber match between Tim Kennedy and Jason Miller for the upcoming Strikeforce card on March 5 in Columbus.

Sources close to one of the fight camps alerted MMAmania.com to the change in plans earlier today.

Stepping in for "Mayhem" will be middleweight prospect Luke Rockhold, who's been torching the "Challengers" scene for the past two years and racking up six straight wins.

But can the 7-1 prospect handle the experience of Kennedy when they collide at the Nationwide Arena?

Kennedy suffered a disappointing unanimous decision loss to Ronaldo Souza when they tangled back at the "Houston" event in August 2010, one that saw "Jacare" claim the vacant 185-pound strap and send the super-soldier to his first loss in over three years.

A win over a top-prospect like Rockhold could make the argument that he deserves another crack at the title considering Kennedy's first dance with the grappling guru was hardly a blowout.

But does this mean "Mayhem" is reconsidering a drop in weight to fight Nick Diaz?

Time will tell.

Strikeforce recently announced its March 5 event at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, which is expected to feature a main event title fight between light heavyweight challenger Dan Henderson and division champion Rafael Cavalcante.

That sucks!!!

I was looking forward to this fight!

If the speculation about this allowing for the Diaz v Mayhem match, then I'm all for it.

Thats a blow

Mayhem must know that he could easily take out Nick, even at WW. I hope he realizes that and goes for the hard cut or they should just give him a title shot.

Who else is there at MW

I could have cared less for the Kennedy fight, lets just hope this means he has Diaz in his sights. Maybe after the horrible attendance, Strikeforce will realize it's a money maker as well.

That sucks, would have set Mayhem up for a title shot with Jacare. Hopefully they'll get the Diaz fight booked, Mayhem'll stomp him out, it'll turn out it is Mayhem's last fight on his contract, he'll move over to the UFC and take Silva's title. It's happening fellas; don't be scared homie!
