Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto is now off the 5/15 Strikeforce event in St. Louis. Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker informed reporters of the change today during a conference call promoting the May 15 event, which takes place at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis and airs live on Showtime. Yamamoto was scheduled to take on Federico Lopez on the non-televised portion of "Heavy Artillery." However, Coker said the Japanese featherweight could help plug a talent gap at DREAM.14, an event which recently lost a planned 8-man light heavyweight tournament. Coker said DREAM's promoters asked him to place Yamamoto on the May 15 card but changed their minds in the shake-up.

This is a major bummer for the Strikeforce card.

Well they had Kid on basically the under card. The biggest japanese MMA star on the under card is the equivalent of Randy, Chuck, or GSP going to Japan and being put on the under card.

Kid might not be the same fighter anymore but the guy is still a star. I'm glad they pulled him off of Strikeforce. It doesn't seem like they were even appreciating him fighting for them. Hope he demolishes in his next fight.
