Welterweight prospects, Tyron Woodley and Andre Galvao will replace the fight between Luke Rockhold and Matt Lindland on Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons II on Saturday, October 9th, at HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.

The middleweight bout between Rockhold and Lindland was called off after Rockhold sustained a shoulder injury last Saturday while training at American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in San Jose.

“The fight between Tyron and Andre is a great matchup between two young fighters looking to take their careers to the next level. We wish Luke a speedy recovery and are confident he will soon enough rejoin our growing crop of top prospects.”
