Strikeforce Main Card Official for “Melendez vs. Masvidal” on Dec. 17

Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez will defend his title at least one more time before a likely move to the UFC as “El Nino” is set to face Jorge Masvidal in the main event of Strikeforce’s Dec. 17 event on Showtime from San Diego, California, the promotion announced today.

Filling out the main card are women’s featherweight champ Cris “Cyborg” Santos vs. Hiroko Yamanaka, Gegard Mousasi vs. Ovince St. Preux, and KJ Noons vs. Billy Evangelista.

The event could be one of the promotion’s last on Showtime as their broadcast deal ends in early 2012 unless an contract extension is executed by the channel.
