Kevin Randleman signs with Strikeforce, to debut "right away" SAN JOSE, Calif. - While light-heavyweight free agent Tito Ortiz garnered the most attention outside the cage at Saturday night's "Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz," it was another UFC veteran that left the event a Strikeforce employee. Twelve-plus-year-veteran Kevin Randleman (17-12) was announced as the latest signing for Strikeforce at the post-event press conference at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. "Thank you very much for the opportunity to come back and show everybody that I'm not done yet," Randleman said. "Far from it." Specifics of the contract were not announced, but Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said he hopes to have Randleman fight right away. "We have an announcement soon, so you'll have to wait until next week," Coker said. "But we're going to try and put him in the rotation right away. There's going to be some great fights in the future for Kevin, and we're excited." Randleman has fought just twice in the past three-and-a-half years, but he made it clear he was ready to fight the best opponents Strikeforce could muster. "Now that I'm here, understand this – it comes from the heart," Randleman said. "I'll fight anybody, anywhere. When Scott (Coker) says it's time to get down and dirty, understand this: I'm not coming to lose, and I'm not coming to back up." Randleman was suspended indefinitely by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after a failed 2006 drug screen. Coker said that concern has been abated. "I talked with Nevada state, and [Randleman] is cleared to go," Coker said. "So we're good to go." When asked by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) if Strikeforce's June 6 show, "Lawler vs. Shields," in St. Louis was a likely target for Randlemean's organizational debut, Coker declined to specify. "Kevin is back, and we're happy to have him as part of the Strikeforce/Showtime family," Coker said. "We're going to put him in action right away. Right away."
