Sportsbook.com Line: Rockhold -550, Jardine +350

In the Strikeforce middleweight championship bout Saturday night in Las Vegas, Luke Rockhold takes on challenger Keith Jardine.

Rockhold won the title in his most recent fight, an exciting unanimous decision over Ronaldo Souza in September. He has won his past seven fights, five of which have come on submissions, the crux of his attacking style. Although Jardine earned a draw in his Strikeforce debut his last time out to Gegard Mousasi, this fight will be a new test for him as he makes his middleweight debut. But, his recent performances have given no indications he has any chance against such a dominant foe.

Rockhold (8-1-0) is one of the best middleweights in the world and brings a submission-based game to the table that is unrivaled in the sport. But, he supplements those tactics with strong striking skills based in kickboxing and Jiu-Jitsu. Although he was not able to end the bout early against Souza, he easily controlled that fight throughout and should be able to do the same against an even less-talented opponent in Jardine. His freestyle strategy should give him another easy route to victory in a fight that may not take very long to be put under wraps.

At 36 years old, Jardine (16-10-2) is not the fighter he once was, which was nothing too special to start off with. He has a draw and two wins in his past three bouts, but before that, he lost five in a row against strong opponents. But, the fact that he could not pull out any wins in those five matches – which included bouts against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Thiago Silva, and Matt Hamill – is not encouraging in making him a play for an upset. He seemingly does not have a chance against the dominant Rockhold.
