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:
â€œThe heavyweight division, they all agreed that there wasnâ€™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,â€ Coker shared during Thursdayâ€™s conference call. â€œBut now that the Showtime relationship has been renewed and itâ€™s been solid, I think youâ€™re going to see those great fights on the lighter weights â€“ starting with light heavyweight on down in Strikeforce.â€
â€œWe have a great relationship with Showtime, I think we have provided great fights with great ratings. I think youâ€™ll continue to see Strikeforce on Showtime for many years to come.â€
