June 22, 2007
Starting around 7:30 EST
Strikeforce Judgment Day is a event not to be missed. With a packed fight card full of well know brawlers, the Strikeforce card is looking to eclipse UFC 72 as the fight of the week. The main event will be Phil Baroni vs. Frank Shamrock in a fight that was supposed to happen last year, now must be settled live on Showtime PPV. Cung Le is continuing his path as a mixed martial arts fighter, taking on Tony “The Freak” Fryklund. Krazy Horse Bennett should be ready to fight as he was released on bond from jail, for allegedly violating his probation, but he was unable to make the flight in time so James Edson Berto will fight in his place. Joey Villasenor former Pride fighter out of Jackson Submission Grappling camp is looking to take on Murilo “Ninja” Rua for the vacant middleweight belt.
