Two international destinations are on the radar for Strikeforce's upcoming heavyweight grand-prix tournament.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker this past week told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) that both Ontario, Canada, and Tokyo are under consideration as host cities for the Showtime-televised competition, which kicks off Feb. 12 at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J.

"This is a world grand-prix tournament, which means we might not just be in the United States," Coker said. "This thing could be traveling."

But it also allows for the finals and semi-finals of the tournament to happen in one night.
