Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine was a mixed martial arts event held by Strikeforce. The event took place on January 7, 2012 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold knocked out UFC veteran Keith Jardine in the first round to defend the 185-pound title for the first time in the main event of Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine event in Las Vegas.

Luke Rockhold vs Keith Jardine:

Referee Herb Dean is the third man in the octagon for this 185-pound title bout. Jardine darts across the cage and circles Rockhold, throwing out range-finding jabs. The champion is sitting back to counter until he leaps in with a kick to the body and mugs Jardine with punches on the fence.

Jardine turns it around, holding Rockhold on the fence with an underhook, then the American Kickboxing Academy fighter reverses again. Rockhold lands a few knees to the body and an elbow as Jardine circles out. The “Dean of Mean” dodges a high kick and grins, waving Rockhold on, and the champ obliges with a turning kick to the gut. Rockhold’s landing combinations now, causing Jardine to turn away toward the fence.

Jardine puts a couple good kicks on Rockhold’s right knee and Rockhold responds by dropping Jardine with a close-quarters right hand behind the ear. Jardine hops back up and they’re slinging leather with a minute to go. A big overhand right lands on Jardine’s ear and the UFC vet wobbles backward.

Rockhold pounces and sends Jardine down with another right hand. Jardine stumbles to his feet against the fence and is met by more punches which drop him again instantly. Ref Dean hovers nearby, giving the still-moving Jardine every chance to recover, but Rockhold is all over him and this one’s a wrap. Rockhold retains his Strikeforce middleweight title with a decisive TKO.
