Rockhold Sets his Sights on Kennedy

Mike Chiappetta, - For Luke Rockhold, it's back to punching, back to kicking, back to making new believers. Though he hasn't gotten the official word quite yet, the Strikeforce middleweight champion has been informally told that his next title defense will come against Tim Kennedy, likely in July.

Coming on the heels of his title win over Ronaldo "Jacare" Souze and a successful first defense in an opening-round knockout of Keith Jardine, Rockhold is hoping to cement his place among the world's top middleweights.
