Former UFC heavyweight champion Kevin Randleman (17-12) will make his Strikeforce debut against Mike Whitehead (23-6) at Strikeforce â€œLawler vs. Shieldsâ€ on June 6 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, according to Sherdog.
Randleman has only competed once since his 2006 loss to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at PRIDE 32. Riddled with health issues, steroid allegations and a DUI, Kevin Randleman will look to get back to fighting after a long stint of in activeness. Randleman recently tied the knot to longtime girlfirend Elizabeth at Lake Las Vegas.
TUF 2 cast member Mike Whitehead is coming off a submission win over Leo Pla at M-1 Challenge 8th Edition. Winning 14 of his last 15 fights, Whitehead will be looking to impress in his Strikeforce debut on June 6.
