Strikeforce Adds Two More to Tacoma Card

By Josh Gross Feb 6, 2008
Jorge Masvidal (Pictures) will fight Ryan Healy (Pictures) as part of the Feb. 23 "Strikeforce At The Dome" in Tacoma, Wash., has learned.

Meeting at a catch-weight of 160 pounds, Masvidal and Healy (9-2-1) promises to be a stand-up affair. Fighting out of Miami, Fla., Masvidal (12-2) looks to extend a six-fight win streak that includes a stoppage of Yves Edwards (Pictures).

Strikeforce VP Mike Afromowitz confirmed the 10-bout card at the Tacoma Dome would also include a welterweight contest between IFL veteran Brad Blackburn (Pictures) and Ray Perales (Pictures).

Previously announced bouts feature Bob Sapp (Pictures) in his cage-fighting debut against K-1 veteran Jan Nortje (Pictures); Maurice Smith (Pictures) takes on fellow kickboxing champion Rick Roufus; and Duane Ludwig (Pictures) battles veteran Steve Berger (Pictures).

Though no television broadcast is currently in place, that could change in the run-up to Feb. 23, Afromowitz said.
