Report: Blackburn-Berger Set for Strikeforce

MMA veterans Brad Blackburn and Steve Berger will meet in a welterweight bout at Strikeforce at the Dome, which is set to take place on February 23rd at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington according to a report by The Fight Network.

Blackburn spent the last two years as a member of the IFL’s Seattle Tiger Sharks before leaving the promotion this past fall. Blackburn racked up three wins and two losses under the IFL banner, including an impressive stoppage victory over Jay Hieron in June of this year. Blackburn is coming off of a no-contest against Travis Cox where he unintentionally struck Cox’s head with a knee while he was down. Cox was deemed unable to continue.

Berger has fought his last three contests inside the confines of BodogFight. His last bout was a unanimous decision loss to Diego Gonzalez during the tapings for BodogFight: Vancouver season. His lone win in Calvin Ayre’s promotion came in February in the form of a split decision over Piotr Jakaczynski. The UFC veteran has lost seven of his last nine bouts.
