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

Strikeforce not yet licensed for Nov. 3 show

Quote:
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 MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) 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.
