“Strikeforce just added me on the fight card of March 5,” wrote Manhoef. “Against who? That’s still a little surprise!”
Sherdog.com contacted the promotion inquiring about Manhoef’s potential opponent, but Strikeforce revealed no further information on the matchup.
Known for his powerful muay Thai attack, Manhoef owns 23 of his 24 career MMA victories by knockout. After racking up five straight wins from 2007 to 2008, the 34-year-old has gone just 2-4 in his last six contests. Recently, “No Mercy” suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of Robbie Lawler and Tatsuya Mizuno.
In his bout with Lawler, Manhoef was well on his way to victory, battering the American’s lead leg with vicious kicks before Lawler snatched victory by winging a counter right hand that clipped Manhoef on the jaw. Lawler pounced and finished his foe, earning both the victory and Sherdog.com's “Knockout of the Year” for 2010. Manhoef owns career wins over Mark Hunt, Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos and Kazushi Sakuraba.view original article >>
