The fight card for Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum continues to fill out and take on a decidedly non-Strikeforce feel. Unlike the SVSE-era Strikeforce, Zuffa-operated Strikeforce cards feature high-level competitive MMA fights on the under card as well. The most recent to fill that section is a female lightweight contest between Julie Kedzie and Amanda Nunes. Strikeforce.com has the news:
Representing the renowned Jackson’s MMA team in Albuquerque, Kedzie (16-8) currently sports a four fight winning streak that includes victories over Sarah D’Alelio and Kaitlin Young. But the third degree Taekwondo black belt will be put to the test by Brazil’s Nunes (6-1), a 22 year old phenom who rebounded from a loss in her pro debut to win her next six fights. In January’s Strikeforce Challengers show, she made an immediate impression with a 14 second knockout of Julia Budd, and as the newest member of New Jersey’s AMA Fight Club, she is ready to continue her move up the rankings on June 18th.
