Saffiedine will be looking to become Strikeforce’s last Welterweight Champion with a victory over the his favored veteran opponent. Strikeforce OKC will be the last Strikeforce event ever. UFC front-man Dana White will be closing down the longtime fight league following this event. Both fighters will be looking to join the UFC’s Welterweight stable with an impressive showing in this match up.
