Strikeforce confirmed on Monday the rest of its main card for the July 30 heavyweight showdown between Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson.

Also on the card (Showtime, 10 p.m. EDT/PDT):

Marloes Coenen vs. Miesha Tate (women's 135-pound championship)
Robbie Lawler vs. Tim Kennedy
Paul Daley vs. Tyron Woodley
Scott Smith vs. Tarec Saffiedine

Coenen and Tate could make for an interesting fight. Remember, Coenen was getting the worst of it against Liz Carmouche in March until a late-round submission kept the belt around Coenen's waist. Tate, pictured above, trains with Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, so surely Urijah Faber, Joseph Benavidez and the crew passed along their affinity for submission chokes.

Lawler, Daley and Smith all have knockout capability, as we've seen in the past.
