EliteXC lightweight champion K.J. Noons will be making his Strikeforce debut against Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett in a rematch, while Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos will be defending her Strikeforce 145 pound female championship against Jan Finney.
The event is slated for June 26 from San Jose, California, with Fedor Emelianenko meeting Fabricio Werdum in the main event of the evening.
Bennett handed Noons the last defeat of his career back in February of 2007 via first round knockout. Noons has since gone on a four fight win streak while the always controversial Bennett is coming off of a knckout loss at the hands of Bobby Green during a King of the Cage event last December.
Cyborg is currently riding a nine fight win streak that includes wins over Gina Carano and Marloes ceonen, while Finney has put together four consecutive wins since losing to Erin Toughill back in November of 2008.
