Tyron Woodley and Tarec Saffiedine are front-runners to meet for the vacant belt, according to Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker, after they defeated Paul Daley and Scott Smith respectively at Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson” event.
The potential matchup would be a rematch of January’s Strikeforce Challengers 13 main event, which saw Woodley earn a unanimous decision over Saffiedine.
Strikeforce doesn’t yet have any major event scheduled beyond its September 10 card, which features the semifinals of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix.
