Default Re: Showtime close to ending Strikeforce deal, promotion could fold soon

Strikeforce not yet licensed for Nov. 3 show

Strikeforce has yet to submit a promoter's license or seek a permit for an event on Nov. 3 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, but the Oklahoma State Athletic Commission still expects the event to take place.

OSAC representative Aleta Billings today told ( that Strikeforce restated its intent to promote the card as recently as two weeks ago, but hasn't heard anything since.

Billings said a reasonable cutoff for the promotion to submit the paperwork is "a couple of weeks out" and indicated the commission hasn't received any indication of a possible cancelation.

The OSAC regulates combat sports events held in Oklahoma. It has never overseen a Strikeforce event but has several times done so for big-brother promotion UFC.
