A previously announced welterweight bout between former EliteXC champion Jake Shields and UFC veteran Joe Riggs has been scratched from Strikeforce's April 11 line-up on Showtime.

The news comes courtesy of The Fight Network's partner FiveOuncesOfPain.com.

According to the report by Sam Caplan, neither Riggs or Shields is injured. Sources told Caplan that Shields may be preserved for a main event spot on the next Strikeforce card in Seattle set for May, possibly against former EliteXC middleweight champion Robbie Lawler.

Yeah dont want to blow your load on one card.

Save Shields vs Riggs for the next card and then add lawler vs Smokin Joey V.

Just Cancel the whole show and have them ALL fight in SEATTLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only 2nd major MMA event in the SEattle area and both will have been StrikeForce.

The Sonics have left the Key Arena and tha would be a perfect venue for MMA

We put 17K into the Tacoma dome, Now we need to up that and get the UFC to come to Seattle instead of Portland!

We should also have some Yuppie vs Hippie fights in the prelims we have a lot of both and at least one would get beat up, they both deserve it!
