Tim Kennedy vs. Melvin Manhoef Booked for “Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson”

Will the third time be the charm for Tim Kennedy?

Just days after a matchup between Kennedy and Luke Rockhold was announced for “Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson,” Kennedy has instead been booked to face Dutch kickboxer Melvin Manhoef at the March 5 event in Columbus, Ohio, according to MMAjunkie.

Kennedy was originally slated for a rubber match with fellow middleweight contender Jason “Mayhem” Miller that fell apart for unknown reasons.

Kennedy won four-straight before falling to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza for the middleweight title in August, while Manhoef has lost four of his last six, including a first-round KO to Robbie Lawler in his Strikeforce debut last January.
