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.
