Report: Showtime close to ending Strikeforce deal
Here's the report, which was delivered by "Inside MMA's" Kenny Rice:
"'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."
At this point in time, the report has been neither officially confirmed nor denied by the powers that be at Showtime or Strikeforce.
