Strikeforce continues to add really good fights to Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson in Hoffman Estates, IL on July 30th. This one is in the middleweight division, and features the last two men to challenge Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza for the Strikeforce middleweight title - Tim Kennedy and "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler. Strikeforce tweeted about the fight "less than a minute ago":

Kennedy has been asking for this fight for a while now and all but confirmed it last month in an interview. He is coming off a quick submission win over Melvin Manhoef in March. Lawler hasn't fought since he was submitted by the champion Souza at Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg in January. The matchup adds to an already stellar card on July 30th:

Dan Henderson vs. Fedor Emelianenko
Marloes Coenen vs. Miesha Tate (for Women's 135 lb. title)

Roger Gracie vs. Muhammed Lawal
