Strikeforce: Evangelista Santos vs Jordan Mein in the works for Sept. 10

There's an interesting welterweight match-up brewing for the upcoming Strikeforce event on Sept. 10 as former 170-pound number one contender Evangelista Santos will lock horns with Canadian prospect Jordan Mein.

Strikeforce brought word of the pending bout earlier today via Twitter.

The promotion has yet to nail down a location for the Fall event; however, several bouts have already been attached to the Showtime-televised fight card including the semifinals of the heavyweight grand prix tournament.

That equates to major exposure for Mein, who brings a 22-7 record and five-fight win streak into his fight against Santos. "Cyborg" (18-14) was last seen getting tapped out by Nick Diaz in the second round of their welterweight title fight back in January.

Here is the current Strikeforce fight card and line-up for Sept. 10:

Heavyweight Grand Prix Semifinal Tournament:

Alistair Overeem vs. Antonio Silva
Josh Barnett vs. Sergei Kharitonov

Main Card (Showtime):

Ronaldo Souza vs. Luke Rockhold
Roger Gracie vs. Muhammed Lawal
Maximo Blanco vs. Josh Thomson
Mike Kyle vs. Gegard Mousasi

Preliminary Card (May not be broadcast):

Evangelista Santos vs. Jordan Mein

Fight card and bout order subject to change
