Strikeforce in Oklahoma Cancelled, Next Event Planned For January 2013



Strikeforce announced today it is planning its next card set to air live on Showtime in January 2013. Further information on the fight card and location will be announced shortly.

Strikeforce also announced the cancellation of its Nov. 3 event at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla., due to injuries sustained by main event star Frank Mir and co-main event star Luke Rockhold. Refunds for tickets purchased are available at point of sale.

“Due to a series of injuries, we were forced to cancel the upcoming card on Nov. 3, but are already working to put together a stacked card in January,” Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said.

“While we’re disappointed with the cancellation, we are looking forward to an even bigger Strikeiforce event on Showtime early next year,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President & General Manager, Showtime Sports®

    Should be a damn good card come January though. Rockold, Cormier, Jacare, Mousasi, Barnett. This really sucks for the fighters.

    In other news though (not sure how to contact Cody or Keith), RFA, the company ran by Ed Soares has just bought out Titan FC. They also have another big promotion acquisition on the way and apparently a good TV deal about to be announced for their next show. The card on the 2nd is INCREDIBLY stacked with vets and super high class prospects. I recommend everybody check it out.

    Sorry BTW, I hope I didn’t derail the thread lol.
