Strikeforce on CBS in April with Fedor and Hendo

Quote:
Strikeforce will be under the CBS eye for the second time in April.

CBS Primetime Senior Executive Vice President Kelly Kahl on Tuesday confirmed exclusively to MMAWeekly.com that the network was planning to broadcast a second card with the San Jose, Calif.-based promotion in April on a date yet to be announced.

“We’re looking at a few different dates and there are venue considerations,” said Kahl.

The card will air in its usual Saturday at 9 p.m. ET slot, with a tape-delayed broadcast on the West Coast.

Kahl said prized Strikeforce heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko will appear on the card against an opponent to be determined. In October, the promotion’s current heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem, called the Russian out for an April meeting.

Also due to appear is recent signee Dan Henderson, who left the UFC this month in a highly publicized move. Henderson’s opponent is also TBA, though Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker told Steve Cofield of Yahoo! Sports that Henderson’s first opponent was likely current middleweight champion Jake Shields. Shields’ manager/father, Jack Shields, declined comment on the match-up.

Kahl said the Emelianenko and Henderson bouts would likely be the co-main events on the card. Further details on the event's roster would be finalized shortly.

“Coming off a successful November show, we look forward to being back in the cage,” he said.

Great news!

Fedor on CBS means we'll get to see Mousasi also on the same card.

Hendo/Mousasi maybe?

Damn Henderson-Shields maybe...I'm loving this fight.

It won't be as easy for Dan as some are trying to make it out to be.

Best Strikeforce card ever if those two fights really come through they are hinting at.

Wow, that's an amazing card. Let's look at potential matchups:


Fedor vs Overeem

Fedor vs Barnett (copromotion mentioned by SF before)

Mousasi vs Henderson

Mousasi vs King Mo

Henderson vs Shields

Henderson vs Babalu


So many possible matchups... but we know for sure that Mousasi, Fedor, and Henderson are on this card and that means it's going to be amazing.

Fedor/Barnett would be in Japan (Dream). It couldnt be set for this April card (which will be aired live on CBS).

We'll probably get Fedor/Werdum or Fedor/Alistair.

Wait for sure it'll happen in Dream? I thought Barnett was getting cleared to fight in the US again.
