Default Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Healy EVENT CANCELLED

Quote:
Las Vegas, Nevada – STRIKEFORCE® announced this evening that its event planned for Saturday, Sept. 29 at Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento, Calif. has been cancelled. STRIKEFORCE lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez, who was set to defend his title against Pat Healy, sustained an injury in training that forced his withdrawal from the card.
Without the Melendez-Healy title bout, SHOWTIME®, which determines which fights are televised on the premium network, decided that it would not air Saturday’s scheduled event.
“When SHOWTIME informed us that it would not be airing the event, we made the difficult decision to cancel Saturday’s card in Sacramento,” STRIKEFORCE CEO Scott Coker said. “Without a television partner, we simply could not move forward with this event. We wish Gilbert a speedy recovery and will work diligently and quickly to reschedule the fighters affected by this news on upcoming cards.”
Refunds for tickets purchased are available at point of sale.

This is just falling apart at the seams. One injury and an entire card shelved. This is bad news for Zuffa who already have a strained relationship with Showtime because of Dana.

I'm sure Frankie Edgar wants a fight.

It was a lackluster card - but Strikeforce always seems to put on fun events regardless.

I didn't recognize more than two names on that card. That's not even SPike/Fuel TV worthy. MMA had a terrible card last week, with the exception of the main event.
