Jorge Masvidal and opponent K.J. Noons both know they have a tough fight ahead of them at Saturday's "Strikeforce: Werdum vs. Overeem" event.
The hard-hitting sluggers, who are cut from the same cloth, kick off the event's Showtime-televised main card at Dallas' American Airlines Center.
But while Saturday's fight is priority No. 1, it's hard not to look ahead to a possible title fight with Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez.
