Representin' The MA's
Strikeforce returns to it's homebase of San Jose, CA for a major show on October 9 that will kick off the promotion's middleweight tournament. Scott Coker said the organization is still discussing two possible tournament formats for the middleweight grand prix: a same-night four man tourney, or an eight-slot grand prix held over the course of two events. Regardless of the format, the winner gets a title shot with either Tim Kennedy or Ronaldo Souza, who fight for recent UFC signee Jake Shields' vacant title at next week's "Strikeforce: Houston" event. The 10/9 event will air on Showtime.
