Strikeforce opens May 19 "Lawler vs. Shields" press conference to the public

If you're in the St. Louis area, the May 19 Strikeforce press conference will be open to the public.

MMA Junkie has the scoop

Nearly three weeks before the organization makes its Missouri debut, Strikeforce will head to St. Louis for a press conference with many of the card's top fighters.

The organization has opened the event to the media and the public.

The press conference takes place next Tuesday, May 19, at the Atrium in the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. The event begins at 1 p.m. CT (local time).

The Scottrade Center also hosts the June 6 "Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields" event, which airs on Showtime. The main event features two champions from the now-defunct EliteXC organization, middleweight Robbie Lawler and welterweight Jake Shields, at a catch-weight of 182 pounds.

In addition to Lawler and Shields, scheduled to appear at the press conference are event participants Kevin Randleman and opponent Mike Whitehead, and Joe Riggs and opponent Phil Baroni. Strikeforce CEO and founder Scott Coker will also be in attendance.

Strikeforce, which recently inked a multi-year deal with Showtime, is based in California and recently expanded into Washington and Colorado. The June 6 show marks its first-ever event in the Midwest.
Bummed if Diaz doesn't show up, as he will surely be a good sound clip for the fans and journalists in attendance.
