So much for Strikeforce getting a free pass from UFC even though SF promoter Scott Coker & Dana White don't have a bad relationship. On April 11, when SF broadcasts it's return event on Showtime, UFC will counter with a replay of UFC 94 for free on Spike.

WOW that's dirty. Good for the business BAD for the sport. I have seen UFC 94 about 4 or 5 times already so I know what I am watching.

Dana doesnt like any competition.

Too bad I'll be watching Strikeforce, because I have showtime.

What does everyone expect him to do? They are competitors, I'd be more surprised if Dana decided to sit on his laurels. Strikeforce should feel flattered frankly.

I'll try and watch both if I'm home, will have to catch a stream of SF because I don't get Showtime.

i agree man, he is trying to maintain his business being at the top for along time. however i myself didnt think 94 was all that great and lacked some true excitement but the name will get guys to watch. i will be hopefully buying showtime and dvr'ing 94

shotime is a great channel. It has cool shows like dexter, californication, etc etc. But what i like most about it is the ShoBox. It's like UFN's for boxing. i actually prefer it to HBO's boxing after dark.

I agree, it would be more of a slap in the face to let Strikeforce run un challenged. If the UFC didnt counter them it would show that they are not concerned about Strikeforce as far as competition....obviously they are.

Too bad I dont have Showtime
