Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy took place July 14, 2012, at the Rose Garden in Portland, Ore. Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold put his title on the line against Tim Kennedy in the main event, while Nate Marquardt and Tyron Woodley squared off for the vacant Strikeforce welterweight title in the co-main event.

In the main event, Rockhold utilized his superior striking and vastly-improved takedown defense to rout Kennedy for a fairly lopsided unanimous decision. People have overlooked Rockhold for a long time, and his win over Kennedy only furthers his progression in the middleweight division.

Luke Rockhold vs Tim Kennedy:

Round 5: As the final round opens, they resume the familiar position with Rockhold pushing the pace and moving Kennedy along the outside. Rockhold scores with leg kicks and pawing punches before sprawling on a double-leg try from Kennedy, who instead opts to clinch and knee at the thigh of the champ.

A straight left from Rockhold lands square on Kennedy’s jaw and the Army man goes for another takedown. Rockhold grabs the waist and rolls him over, but Kennedy snares a guillotine in the scramble. The choke doesn’t last long, as Rockhold winds up on top, kneeing Kennedy’s body with just over two minutes left in the bout. Kennedy throws a slow left over the top and Rockhold makes him pay with a one-two to the body and head.

Rockhold waves his challenger on as he continues stalking. Kennedy takes a little jog before shooting again and being denied another takedown. Rockhold puts him on the fence, fires a knee up the middle and steps away. The fight ends, fittingly, with Rockhold turning away another shot from Kennedy on the fence.
