By: Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

Strikeforce heads to Portland, Oregon this July with two title fights on Showtime, and on Tuesday they announced the official on-sale date for tickets, along with three new fights for the card on July 14.

Tickets for the card, coming to the Rose Garden in Portland, go on sale to the public this Friday, June 1, with prices ranging from $40-$125. UFC Fight Club members have access to tickets on Wednesday, May 30, while UFC and Strikeforce Newsletter subscribers have access on Thursday, May 31.

The main Showtime card for the event is headlined by a Middleweight Title bout between Luke Rockhold and Tim Kennedy, with a co-main event for the vacant Strikeforce Welterweight Championship between a debuting Nate Marquardt and Tyron Woodley. Rounding out the main card are middleweight bouts pitting Keith Jardine against Roger Gracie and Robbie Lawler against Lorenz Larkin.

"The Pacific Northwest is home to great MMA fans and we're excited to bring an incredible event to Portland this July," said Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker in Tuesday's press release. "With Luke Rockhold versus Tim Kennedy for the middleweight title and undefeated Tyron Woodley against Nate Marquardt for the vacant welterweight crown, there's no doubt that we’re bringing something special to the Rose Garden Arena. Having Keith Jardine, Robbie Lawler and Roger Gracie also on the card makes this one of the most stacked cards of the summer!"

In addition to those four fights, the event will feature a number of preliminary card fights, which will air live on Showtime Extreme prior to the main card broadcast. Three of those fights are now official, as Pat Healy takes on Mizuto Hirota, Jordan Mein meets Tyler Stinson, and Jason High returns to action against Nate Moore.
