Catching Up With All The Strikeforce News In The Past Two Days

New, 13 comments

You know, I guess all of criticism I've been throwing Strikeforce's way for being unorganized and failing at promoting their events hit home.  Probably didn't, but at least they are trying to get their name in the news cycle once again.  A lot has been rumored while some news has been released.  You can check it all out below:

-Gilbert Melendez vs. Shinya Aoki On April Strikeforce card

-Alistair Overeem vs. Brett Rogers On May 15th Strikeforce card

-Andrei Arlovski vs. Antonio Silva on May 15th Strikeforce card

-Strikeforce wants Herschel Walker On THe April Strikeforce card

Still no word on Fedor Emelianenko and when he'll be fighting, although his camp doesn't want to fight Overeem.  They instead want to fight Josh Barnett, who just signed with DREAM.

Also, although the April Strikeforce card will air on CBS, there's no word on where the May Strikeforce card will air.  It'll be either the second consecutive month that Strikeforce will air on CBS, or the May show will air on Showtime.  My bet is that it'll air on Showtime, because I doubt the ratings for the April show will be THAT impressive.
