Have the floodgates opened?

Mere weeks after former Jose Canseco's potential foray into U.S. mixed martial arts appeared to be a dead issue, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said he's not entirely opposed to the former baseball star entering the cage.

That's not to say Coker is actively campaigning to sign Canseco, a former MLB All-Star. But as Coker said – half-jokingly – after the Ultimate Fighting Championship's recent signing of 41-year-old boxer James Toney, all bets are off.

"I can tell you this: If Cesar Gracie says to me, 'Jose's training with me, I'm going to get him ready, and I'm going to do it in four or five months,' and Cesar's telling me this? That will have a lot of weight on what we decide," Coker recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Doesn't he have to make it past a drug test first?
