While Brunson gets a laser shot into his eyes to keep himself in the good graces of future fight commissions, International Fight League (IFL) veteran Bristol Marunde will get a chance to dazzle fans at the Nationwide Arena as he answers the call of "Jacare."
Marunde is 9-1 over his last 10 fights and the winner of four straight, including a unanimous decision win over UFC veteran Jay Silva at Superior Cage Combat 3 last November.
The bad news is that two of his losses have come by way of triangle choke, which could be blood in the water for a grappling shark like Souza. Prior to coughing up his 185-pound title to Luke Rockhold last September, the Brazilian won four of his first five fights under the Strikeforce banner.
Here is the revised Strikeforce: "Tate vs. Rousey" fight card:
