The southpaw brawler will face MMA veteran Lindland, who was a silver medalist in Greco-Roman wrestling at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.
Mixed martial arts superstar Dan Henderson will take on Sobral at light heavyweight (205 pounds) in the main event. In other televised fights, football legend and unbeaten MMA fighter Herschel Walkerwill face determined heavyweight Scott Carson and former world heavyweight champion Antonio "Big Foot” Silva faces Valentijn "The Python” Overeem, the older brother of STRIKEFORCE heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem.
