Strikeforce Looking At May 19 For Next Event

Sources have confirmed with that Strikeforce is looking to hold a card on May 19, possibly from San Jose, California. The next Strikeforce event, Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey, takes place next Saturday night.

After having to push the finals of the heavyweight grand prix off the upcoming Columbus, Ohio card, there is a chance that Daniel Cormier and Josh Barnett meet in May to determine a champion. Cormier has been recovering from a hand injury suffered in his semifinal round win over Antonio Silva.

If the card does take place in San Jose, it would likely be hosted by the HP Pavilion. Also, Cormier trains in San Jose at American Kickboxing Academy, giving the former Olympian a large home-crowd advantage.
