Coker not interested in Trigg, Coleman, or Canseco

by Michael David Smith | source:

While Strikeforce has some work to do before deciding who Walker's opponent would be in his second pro fight, the promotion has definitely decided that it will not be Canseco.

"That's not going to happen," Coker said. "I know he wants to fight and he trained with Cesar Gracie, but I don't think he's training with Cesar anymore."

While on the subject of old guys looking for one more chance at glory, Coker said he doesn't want Strikeforce to be the place for UFC cast-offs. Asked if he's interested in Mark Coleman and Frank Trigg, both of whom were released after losing fights this month, Coker said, "No, I'm not. No. I would say no."

I see Coleman and Jose fighting over in Japan. Trigg will most likely retire or take some time off. He did not look like he wanted to be in the cage when he fought Serra. Hopefully, Trigg can get an announcing job with someone.

Hershel helps bring in a different fan base. Kind of like Kimbo does. Coleman/Trigg probably wouldn't bring anybody in that wasn't watching already.

Good for him. When fighters leave on a losing note from the UFC they are basically damaged goods. No matter how good they do for the next promotion the UFC can always say they didn't make it in the UFC or their time has passed. Keeps rival companies as 2nd rate in the eye of the casual fan.Under the right circumstances it might be alright but these two are not the right circumstances.
