Reports have surfaced regarding Strikeforce’s purchase of “select” Pro Elite assets earlier today. Not all the terms of the agreement have been set in stone as some fighters (ie. Jake Shields & Robbie Lawler) have admitted that the are still currently in discussions with Strikeforce.
Many assume that the fighters of Pro Elite were the primary factor behind Strikeforce’s purchase of the former MMA promotion.
We do know that Strikeforce did sign a deal with CBS and Showtime, but we’re unclear as to how this will affect their current NBC deal.
Strikeforce’s next event is scheduled for April 11th and will be shown on Showtime.
