Luke Rockhold is defending his Strikeforce middleweight belt this weekend against UFC veteran Keith Jardine, but really, how much do you know about him? He trains with some of the world's best fighters at American Kickboxing Academy, won his championship in September with a decision over Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, and Strikeforce brought him up slowly through the ranks.

Spend a minute and 38 seconds on him to learn a little bit more before Saturday's fight.

Don't forget that this is Showtime's free preview weekend, so you have no excuse for missing the fights.
