Light heavyweight Antwain Britt, a cast member on The Ultimate Fighter 8, will make his Strikeforce debut on December 19 at Strikeforce: Evolution against Scott Lighty, according to The Curtis and Kyle Show.
Britt (9-3) defeated Ryan Jimmo in the opening round on TUF 8, but a broken hand suffered in the win forced him off the show. After going 1-1 following his appearance on the UFC reality series, “The Juggernaut” participated in Vendetta FC’s one night tournament in September, where he advanced to the finals with back-to-back wins before losing to Rodney Wallace.
Lighty (5-0), who trains at The Pit alongside Chuck Liddell, improved to 5-0 in August with a first-round knockout of Mike Cook in his Strikeforce debut.
“Evolution,” which airs live on Showtime from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California, features Cung Le vs. Scott Smith and Matt Lindland vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza as well as Robbie Lawler and the debut of Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal.
