Couture vs Heun was added to this card:

Quote:
A lightweight bout between Conor Heun (9-4 MMA, 1-2 SF) and Ryan Couture (3-1 MMA, 3-1 SF) has been added to March's "Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey" event.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed the bout with event sources.

"Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey" takes place March 3 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Columbus, and coincides with the annual Arnold Sports Festival.

The main card airs on Showtime, and prelims air on Showtime Extreme. Heun vs. Couture likely will be part of the prelims.

Heun recently snapped a two-fight skid and picked up his first Strikeforce win with a unanimous-decision victory Magno Almeida in June. Prior to the win, the IFL and EliteXC vet had dropped close decisions to Jorge Gurgel and K.J. Noons under the Strikeforce banner.

Couture recently rebounded from his career loss, which came to Matt Ricehouse in June, with a September majority-decision victory over Maka Watson. Prior to that, the Xtreme Couture fighter opened his pro career in Strikeforce with submission victories over Lucas Stark and Lee Higgins.

I just watched an interview Rhonda Rousey did on Attack of the Show and man she is cocky.

Are you sure she's being cocky or are you just mistaking confidence?

Did you see it? If she just talked about how she was confident she was going to win that is one thing. She talked about beating up 2 or 3 guys in a movie theater. It sounded like they deserved it, but still. She also got fired up about Cyborg, talked about the tweet thing, and quoted it. Basically said Cyborg's arm was coming home with her next, if she hadn't cheated. Again which is true, the cheating part anyway, I think she might be biting off a little more than she can chew with Cyborg. It could have been the venue, the show is not really serious. In this interview she came off, to me anyway, as cocky.

Not really saying it was a bad thing either.

Well once again there is a difference between cocky and bitchy. At present she isn't bitchy so I don't think that's a bad thing. Like I said I believe either fighter could win this.

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

Quote:
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).

The full "Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey" card now includes:

MAIN CARD (Showtime)

Champ Miesha Tate vs. Ronda Rousey (for female bantamweight title)
Mike Kyle vs. Gegard Mousasi
K.J. Noons vs. Josh Thomson
Paul Daley vs. Kazuo Misaki
Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza vs. Derek Brunson

PRELIMINARY CARD (Showtime Extreme)

Alexis Davis vs. Sarah Kaufman
Caros Fodor vs. Pat Healy
Lumumba Sayers vs. Scott Smith
Conor Heun vs. Ryan Couture

This is how I see it going aswell.

So Barnet v Cormier isnt on this card then?

I guess not. But I'm glad Ryan Couture is on a main fight card for Strikefoce. Even if it's not the telvised card it's still good.
