Video: The SHOOT! featuring Strikeforce headliner Luke Rockhold

Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold will defend his 185-pound title against division number one contender Tim Kennedy at the upcoming Showtime televised fight card slated for the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon on July 14, 2012.

And he's doing it with freshly manicured toenails.

Rockhold (9-1) has been sidelined with a broken hand since smashing Keith Jardine to kick off his 2012 fight campaign back in January. The win over "The Dean of Mean" extended his winning streak to eight consecutive fights, each one coming under the Strikeforce banner.

Is there a trip to the Octagon in his near future?

Shoot Media takes you behind the scenes as Rockhold trains for his upcoming bout at the famed American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in San Jose, California, home to fellow Strikeforce champion Daniel Cormier.

Who thinks the champ retains on fight night?
