In what appears to be the end of Strikeforce as January rolls around, Dana White seems a little bummed about how the finale came about.
“I am [disappointed],” said White. “I don’t want to talk any s—, though. I could for about four hours. But I won’t. It’s not worth it.”
Strikeforce had to cancel their September and November shows due to injuries in the main events. They were promoting a wrap-up show called Strikeforce: Champions for the upcoming year.
Recent reports have speculated that Gilbert Melendez (21-2) is still injured and unable to defend his championship. Strikeforce has not commented.
Other fights slated include Luke Rockhold (10-1) defending his middleweight title against Lorenz Larkin (13-0-1 NC)and welterweight champ Nate Marquardt (32-10-2) against Tarec Saffiedine (13-3). Daniel Cormier (10-0) vs. Dion Staring (28-7) has also been announced.
