Jordan Mein Set To Face Tyron Woodley
Fast rising Welterweight prospect Jordan Mein will take on undefeated Tyron Woodley in a bout that is likely to create a number one contender for the Strikeforce Welterweight Title. The two will do battle on January 7 at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine.
Jordan Mein’s most recent contest was an impressive domination of former title contender Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos that saw Mein land several crushing elbows from a standing position leading to a TKO victory. Mein is currently riding a 6 fight win streak and has won 10 of his last 11 bouts.
Woodley has been a hot prospect for the last few years with his last victory coming at the expense of another former title contender in British slugger Paul Daley. Woodley has started his career with 9 straight victories without a defeat.
Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine also features a Middleweight Title fight between champion Luke Rockhold and challenger Keith Jardine as well as a Light Heavyweight bout between former Champ Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and rising undefeated prospect Lorenz Larkin.
