Canadian Welterweight Standout Jordan Mein Signs With Strikeforce


(Lee and Jordan Mein)

According to a Facebook post made by his father Lee, who is also his manager and trainer, Canadian welterweight standout Jordan “Young Gun” Mein has inked a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce and will likely compete on the promotion’s planned September card.

A native of Lethbridge, Alberta, Mein (22-7) has been fighting since he was 16 years old. He trains out of his father’s Canadian Martial Arts Centre – the gym responsible for also launching the careers of UFC veterans Jason Day and Jesse Bongfeldt.

Mein will be riding a five-fight win streak when he steps into the Strikeforce cage, including a decision nod over DREAM welterweight champion Marius Zaromskis in his last bout and wins over Joe Riggs and Josh Burkman. His last loss was a hard-fought decision to Jason High last August.

Although no opponent has been named for Mein’s debut with the now Zuffa-owned organization, it’s unlikely he will be thrown in with one of the promotion’s contenders like Tarec Saffiedene, Paul Daley, Tyron Woodley or Jorge Masvidal in his first Strikeforce fight. Perhaps a rematch with High or Zaromskis or a bout with Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos?

As we reported earlier today, the September card is coming together nicely and will feature the next round bouts from the heavyweight tourney between Alistair Overeem and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Josh Barnett and Sergei Kharitonv as well as a middleweight championship clash between champ Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Luke Rockhold.

The signing caps off a bittersweet last two months for the Meins after losing Jordan’s twin brother Preston who passed away in June to complications from surgery.

Most of Mein's fights have been with locals, never outside of Canada (pussies). His 5 most recent fights are with people who lose every third fight. With a record of 22-7 he is no better, no worse that 3 of 4 potential competitors mentioned. The lone exception is Wordley at 8-0. Stop with the hype and bullshit.

It' a long haul to the big shows and Jordan has put in his dues. I know this guy has the skills and drive to be in the mix in his division and the fight savvy to make every fight ,....a Fight.
Good luck Jordan.
