Now it is next week. and on a media call to promote Dec. 17th's Strikeforce: 'Melendez vs. Masvidal', Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said he is optimistic about a deal.

"That's something we'll just have to wait and see," Coker said. "But I think things are going well, and I think we'll have something to announce soon."

"I'm optimistic at this point."

Even if a deal weren't reached, Coker suggested Strikeforce will soldier on.

"In the history of Strikeforce since the relationship with Showtime was developed, we put on, I think some of the best fights in the history of MMA," Coker said. "We've done our part to grow the sport, and that's going to continue. There's still a lot of great fighters on the roster. And we're going to keep building these fighters. We're going to continue putting on great fights. To me, that's not going to change. So everybody can tune into Showtime and watch in 2012, and we're going to put on some amazing, amazing fights."

Pretty sure Frank has decided the braces are part of his image at this stage. He's never getting them removed.

I think the worse part of this deal is that frank shamrock and his braces will continue doing commentary. Very upsetting.
