Aaron Rosa vs. Anthony Ruiz added to SHO MMA 1

Strikeforce announced today the addition of a light-heavyweight bout between Aaron Rosa and Anthony Ruiz for SHO MMA: Strikeforce Challengers on May 15 in Fresno, Calif.

Ruiz, a former contender for the Strikeforce belt, is coming off an unanimous decision loss to Trevor Prangley at Strikeforce at the Mansion 2.

Rosa has already been showcased three times for the show's previous incarnation, ShoXC: Elite Challenger Series. In his last fight, Rosa stopped Ron Fields last June at the Monte Cox-promoted Adrenaline MMA 1.

The inaugural SHO MMA airs live on Showtime at 11 p.m. ET/PT and will also feature Kim Couture (1-1) vs. Miesha Tate (5-1) and headliners Billy Evangelista (9-0) vs. Mike Aina (11-6-1).
