Strikeforce has enjoyed ever-increasing notoriety by snaring Elite XC assets and hooking up with Showtime. To capitalize on their momentum, solid fights cards are being put together and this is shown once again in Saturday night’s line-up.
Well-known fighters such as Jake Shields, Scott Smith, Andrei Arlovski and Phil Baroni will compete under the Strikeforce banner June 6th and the potential for headline-blazing action is huge. I will by no means tell you Strikeforce is the next UFC, however Scott Coker (CEO) and the gang have carved out a nice niche for themselves by having focused on the loyal California market.
With relevant, big names meeting inside their cage alongside upcoming talent in the “Challengers/ShoMMA” series, this growing organization will surely benefit from their new, national exposure. Look for tonight’s show to be another big step in the right direction for Strikeforce.
As always, we will be providing you with fight results so check back for a full run-down on Ws and Ls.
