    Two more bouts are confirmed for the fourth installment of ShoMMA: Strikeforce Challengers Series, scheduled for Nov. 6 at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif.

    Strikeforce Director of Communications informed MMAWeekly.com of the additions Friday afternoon.

    A previously rumored match-up between welterweights Luke Rockhold and Jesse Taylor will grace the main card of the up-and-comer series.

    Rockhold (5-1) is coming off a first round TKO victory over Cory Devela at ShoMMA 2. The American Kickboxing Academy fighter has yet to see a second round in his professional career.

    Taylor (17-4) dropped a unanimous decision to Jay Hieron at Carano vs. Cyborg in August, his first loss in seven fights after a rocky stint in the UFC and the seventh season of "The Ultimate Fighter." The Nov. 6 fight will be his eighth professional fight this year.

    Additionally, heavyweights Shane Del Rosario and Brandon Cash will battle to keep their undefeated records intact.

    Cash (5-0) fights out of Team Buhawe in Fresno and last fought Steve Gavin at the now defunct Palace Fighting Championships in February, winning a unanimous decision.

    Del Rosario (8-0) is coming off a three-fight stint in overseas competition for the M-1 Challenge. A member of Team Oyama in Irvine, Calif., Del Rosario cut his teeth in ShoXC, the now defunct up-and-comer series of ProElite, and has finished all but one of his fights in the first round.

    This is their "Challengers Series" - basically a bunch of crappy/up-and-comer fighters fight each other and hopefully they'll be able to find 1 or 2 good fighters for their main cards eventually
