Strikeforce 1 6 12 00010 299x200 Strikeforce adds Tim Kennedy vs. Trevor Smith to November 3rd CardAfter losing half of its main event earlier this week, Strikeforce has added a middleweight bout between Tim Kennedy and Trevor Smith to their November 3rd fight card. On Tuesday it was announced that former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir was injured and was out against the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix champion Daniel Cormier. The addition of a top ranking fighter like Kennedy lessens the sting of losing a fighter such as Mir.

Kennedy (14-4) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to the Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold this past July. Kennedy had earned that title shot by going 5-1 with Strikeforce, with notable wins against Trevor Prangley, Melvin Manhoef and Robbie Lawler. The Army Green Beret has come up short in his Strikeforce title shots and will look to rebound and get back to the top.

Smith (10-2) lost his last Strikeforce bout back in January by TKO but rebounded in June with a win against Alexandre Moreno outside the promotion. Of the 10 wins that Smith has recorded, none of them have reached the third round and nine of them ended via submission.

The Kennedy vs. Smith bout will likely appear on the main card that also includes a middleweight title fight between the above mentioned Rockhold taking on Lorenz Larkin. The November 3rd Strikeforce event takes will place in the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and will air on Showtime and Showtime Extreme.
