MMAjunkie.com has learned from sources close to the fighters involved that Strikeforce 135-pound female champion Sarah Kaufman has agreed to face top challenger Marloes Coenen, while fast-rising prospect Luke Rockhold and longtime veteran Matt Lindland have also signed on to fight at an as-yet-unannounced Oct. 9 Strikeforce event.

Additionally, Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz is reportedly targeted to appear at the event, though it was not immediately clear if an opponent has been secured.

The event is expected to air on Showtime.
