Scott Smith vs. Tarec Saffiedine Added to “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson”

Another welterweight matchup is in the works for the “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson” fight card, as Scott Smith and Tarec Saffiedine are slated to square off at the July 30 event outside Chicago.

MMAWeekly first reported the bout, which comes after Paul Daley and Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos were added to the Showtime-televised card in an eliminator for the vacant 170-pound title.

Smith (17-8) has lost three of his last four after suffering a first-round KO to Daley in his welterweight debut in December, while Saffiedine (10-3) had his three-fight win streak snapped by Tyron Woodley in January.
