Strikeforce: Melendez vs Masvidal Live Odds

Strikeforce hasn't presented a major card since the Heavyweight Grand Prix Semi-Finals card in September, but they're back on December 17th. San Diego will play host to the event, which could possibly be the last major event the promotion ever puts on.

The main event will see Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez defend his title against Jorge Masvidal. Melendez is on a five-fight winning streak and is universally considered one of the top three lightweights in the world.

A win in this fight would surely see him move over to the UFC. In the co-main, Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos will defend her women's 145 lb. title against former dominatrix Hiroko Yamakana.

Keith Jardine will also be making his middleweight debut.

Gilbert Melendez vs Jorge Masvidal

Melendez has not fought since April when he defeated Tatsuya Kawajiri in at the same arena that he will again defend his belt in. He has vaulted himself to the top of the world lightweight rankings and has not lost since 2008.

Masvidal is coming off of an impressive unanimous decision victory against K.J. Noons in June. Before that he bested undefeated Billy Evangelista also via decision. “Game Bred” will be training extra hard in Miami for the biggest test and opportunity of his career.

Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos vs Hiroko Yamanaka:

"Cyborg" (10-1), who somehow managed to escape serving a life sentence for the murder of Jan Finney, has been booked to defend her Women's 145-pound title against Hiroko Yamanaka (12-1) at the promotion's upcoming Showtime event scheduled for the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, Calif., on Sat., Dec. 17, 2011.

Santos hasn't been seen since smashing "Cuddles" back in June 2010, when she threw a frightening 158 total bombs in the opening frame alone and finished with a total of 141 out of 236 total strikes (60-percent) including 63 "power strikes" and six knockdowns.
