Yesterday BJPENN.COM was first to run a story that the Strikeforce Mixed Martial Arts promotion was close to shutting their doors.
AXS TV’s Inside MMA went on the air last night and reported much of the same during their live broadcast.
“‘Inside MMA’ has heard from multiple sources that the relationship between Strikeforce and Showtime may be coming to an end. We are being told that the November 3rd event is in serious jeopardy, and there’s a strong possibility that Showtime will no longer broadcast Strikeforce events. This could very possibly signify the end of the Strikeforce brand. Strikeforce was purchased by Zuffa in March of 2011. We have to receive any word from either Showtime or Strikeforce as this development continues.”
