Joey Villasenor Signs With Strikeforce, Returns in March

Middleweight Joey Villasenor, a PRIDE and EliteXC veteran, has signed a four-fight deal with Strikeforce and will return to action in March, the fighter recently announced.

Villasenor (27-6) lost to Murilo “Ninja” Rua for EliteXC’s 185-pound title in mid-2007, but has bounced back to win four-straight, including victories over Ryan Jensen and Phil Baroni as well as a split decision over Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos in his most-recent fight last June.

Strikeforce’s only event currently slated for March is a Showtime-televised Strikeforce Challengers event on March 26 in Fresno, California.
