CBS has formally agreed to air its second Strikeforce event in April, Sherdog.com has learned from an executive within the major network.

A specific date and venue has not been decided, though numerous locations are currently being scouted from coast to coast, according to the executive.

Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson are expected to appear on the card, said the CBS source. Henderson, a top-five ranked middleweight, left the UFC to sign a four-fight 16-month deal with Strikeforce on Dec. 5. Sherdog.com has learned that Henderson is being strongly considered to challenge middleweight champion Jake Shields in his promotional debut in April.

Both fighters’ camps told Sherdog.com on Tuesday that they’re open to the possibility of the matchup, though no official talks have begun with the promotion.

nice

Fedor vs Overeem, please and thank you.

 I like Jake but Hendo will make a mess of him pretty quickly....





... and then let the Hendo reign begin.

If Overeem isnt on this card then I absolutely give up on him as far as him ever competing in america.

 Bad match-up for Shields.  He's a small middleweight as is, which Miller more-than exposed in their bout, and his striking is inferior to Hendo's.  It's going to be extremely tough for him to take Henderson down and extremely dangerous for him to keep it standing.

 2 or 3 shows a year ain't gonna compete with the UFC?

If Fedor fights anyone other then Overeem then Strikeforce's titles officially become the biggest joke in MMA.

mcpeepants232003 - ^ no way they have Fedor/Overeem in April 


 Why not?

Hope they get Kang.

 Cool, good to hear that things are working out between the companies and networks.



War Fedor!

War Hendo!

can't wait for more network mma.

guardbr8kr -  2 or 3 shows a year ain't gonna compete with the UFC?


2 or 3 on CBS, probably 5 or so more on showtime i would guess. Then the challengers

ttt

i REALLY hope Strikeforce can make it work. I'm for sure pulling for more quality mma.

great idea for the lw divisions. there are soooooo many 155ers and below with great talent. translates into great fast paste fights, IMO.

 5+ months between good shows (i.e. shows on CBS) sucks.  But it's free so oh well.

I heard Robbie Lawler hasn'tdecided to fight Luke Zachrich this Saturday Yet. Apparently Trevor Prangley pulled out last minute and they offered Robbie Luke and he Hasnt taken the fight with Luke. I think it would be a good fight, but Robbie would get beat by Luke,

Jiu Jitsu Panda - I heard Robbie Lawler dosent want to fight Luke Zachrich this Saturday. Apparently Trevor Prangley pulled out last minute and they offered Robbie Luke and he dosent want to fight Luke. I think Robbie would get beat by Luke,


that has nothing to do with this thread
