Daniel Cormier StrikeforceA heavyweight feature bout and a middleweight champion are expected to headline the next major Strikeforce card headed to Oklahoma City on Nov. 3.

Strikeforce heavyweight Grand Prix champion Daniel Cormier will headline the event in a crossover bout with former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir.

The two fighters meet as Mir agreed to come over to Strikeforce for a one-fight deal to face Cormier in his last bout with the promotion.

Following the fight, both Cormier and Mir will rejoin the ranks of the heavyweights in the UFC.

The card on Nov 3 is expected to take place in Oklahoma City at the Chesapeake Energy Arena according to a report from USA Today.

In addition to the main event bout between Cormier and Mir, Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold is also expected to be part of the upcoming Nov. 3 card as well.

Rockhold recently tweeted news that he was heading back into training camp a littler earlier than expected after defeating Tim Kennedy in July for his second straight title defense.

“Training camp starts tomorrow,” wrote Rockhold on Aug 26. “Fighting sooner than I thought, sure there’ll be an announcement in the next week or two.”

Sources have indicated to MMAWeekly.com that Rockhold will indeed fight on the Nov 3 card, but his opponent remains a mystery. The most logical choice seemed to be former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza, but at this time he has not been confirmed for the Nov 3 show as of yet.

The upcoming Strikeforce card on Nov 3 will air on Showtime at 10pm ET with tape delays on the west coast.
