Strikeforce: Luke Rockhold ready to defend middleweight title against Tim Kennedy (Video)

It's certainly not set in stone just yet but Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold is preparing as though he'll be defending his title next against Tim Kennedy.

From the above video (transcription via Bloody Elbow):

"I'm excited about the fight with Kennedy. I think he's highly underrated, very tough dude, he poses a lot of challenges. I'll be ready. It looks like it's finally going to happen. I've been waiting for that one for a long time, and I'm excited. I'm getting on my wrestling, I was wrestling yesterday. Wrestling's a key for this fight, I gotta control the wrestling."

Interested in Rockhold vs. Kennedy? Or would you rather see the rising young star move over to the UFC to test his mettle against the world's best?
