Previously Announced Bout Is Now The Main Event For Strikeforce's 'Destruction'

Just yesterday, I first made mention of the show, originally slated to feature Josh Thomson's defense of the Lightweight title (against a still-unnamed opponent) in the main event, but gears have already been switched.

Thomson's fight will now be the co-feature, while Bobby Southworth's defense of his Light-Heavyweight title (against Renato Sobral) will be featured in the top spot.

The decision was made, not only because Southworth and (particularly) Sobral are more-recognizable names, but because it's a previously scheduled grudge match, and, thus, should be the "hotter" of the two fights.
