Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker on Thursday confirmed recent speculation that his fight promotion would land in Nashville, Tenn., on April 17. Aside from the date and location, he was rather elusive. No fights were revealed despite expectations of SF Middleweight Champion Jake Shields vs. Dan Henderson for the title on the event, but there was confirmation of no Fedor Emelianenko on the event-he's rumored to face Fabricio Werdum in May. Also no word on TV for the April event but it's expected to be CBS, although it could wind up being Showtime.

Did anyone tell M-1 that in order to get rich in mma, one needs to actually fight!

Fedors prime years are being wasted imo. too bad

How does one month equal years of wasted time? Or was that just a veiled bash against Strikeforce?

*AND* he just fought in November. Not many fighters fight more than once every few months.

Well will the next SF be on CBS? If it isn't he is missing the chance to be seen by a much bigger viewer base.
