Strikeforce/M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Henderson was a mixed martial arts event held by Strikeforce in association with M-1 Global. It took place on July 30, 2011 at Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.
Evangelista Santos was originally scheduled to fight Tarec Saffiedine at this event. However, Saffiedine was pulled from the bout and replaced by Paul Daley. Soon afterwards, Santos was forced out of the bout with Daley due to a shoulder injury. Undefeated welterweight Tyron Woodley stepped in to replace Santos against Daley. Meanwhile, Saffiedine was moved to a bout with Scott Smith at this event.
Roger Gracie was originally scheduled to face Muhammed Lawal at the event. However, the bout was rescheduled for Strikeforce World Grand Prix: Barnett vs. Kharitonov that September after Gracie suffered a training injury. Lawal won the rescheduled bout by first round KO.
The bout between Marloes Coenen and Miesha Tate was originally scheduled to be for the Women's Welterweight belt, but it was renamed to a Women's Bantamweight Championship bout by Zuffa to achieve consistency with the weight class names in the promotion. 
This was the last Strikeforce event featuring Gus Johnson on lead commentary. Strikeforce Challengers color commentator Pat Miletich replaced him on the promotion's main broadcast team at subsequent events, with Mauro Ranallo shifting to full play-by-play duties.
