With plans to close up the Strikeforce heavyweight division this year and combine the Strikeforce roster with the UFC_s, Scott Coker took a look at future plans for the promotion and their relationship with Showtime in an interview with 5thround.com this week:
“The heavyweight division, they all agreed that there wasn’t going to be enough athletes to support both [UFC and Strikeforce] and they wanted to bring some of the fights over there at that time,” Coker shared during Thursday’s conference call. “But now that the Showtime relationship has been renewed and it’s been solid, I think you’re going to see those great fights on the lighter weights – starting with light heavyweight on down in Strikeforce.”
“We have a great relationship with Showtime, I think we have provided great fights with great ratings. I think you’ll continue to see Strikeforce on Showtime for many years to come.”
