Antwain Britt planning for Dec. 19 Strikeforce debut against Scott Lighty at 'Evolution'

Vendetta Fighting Championship (VFC) veteran Antwain Britt (9-3) will reportedly make his Strikeforce debut opposite Scott Lighty (5-0) at "Evolution" from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., on Dec. 19, according to The Curtis and Kyle Show.

"The Juggernaut" competed four times this year including three under the VFC banner. In addition to compiling a respectable 3-1 record, he's finished seven of his nine wins by (T)KO including a knockout over Antonio Mendes back in May.

Welcoming him to the promotion will be Scott Lighty, who made a successful Strikeforce debut with a TKO win over Mike Cook at the "Carano vs. Cyborg" event last August.

The win pushed the Pure Combat and ShoXC veteran to a perfect 5-0.

Strikeforce: "Evolution" is expected to feature an interesting match up of styles between Matt "The Law" Lindland and Ronald "Jacare" Souza as well as the return of former middleweight champion Cung Le against Scott "Hands of Steel" Smith.

Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal and Josh "The Punk" Thomson are expected to be in action as well.
