Strikeforce Middleweight Tournament

On November 16, Strikeforce will hold a one-night, four-man middleweight tournament at the HP Pavilion in San Jose featuring Falaniko Vitale, Trevor Prangley, Yuki Sasaki, and Jorge Santiago.

Rumored to have been in the tournament was Joe "Diesel" Riggs, who withdrew last week and appears to be officially out of the tournament.

Tournament fights will consist of two five-minute rounds, with an overtime round added if necessary. MMAWeekly is reporting that the winner of this tournament may earn a shot at Strikeforce middleweight champ Frank Shamrock. (I'd rather see Cung Le get a title shot, but what do I know.)
