For as many entertaining scraps as Strikeforce broadcast in its pre-Zuffa era, fans of the sport always had one complaint: Where are the preliminary card fights?

Perhaps spoiled by the UFC's recent strategy of utilizing varying combinations Spike TV, ION Television, Facebook and UFC.com to air entire fight cards, MMA fans wanted to know why Strikeforce wasn't doing the same.

Now that the promotion is under the same ownership umbrella as the UFC, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said things may be changing.

I like that their finally gonna start broadcasting the prelims. This helps all us out that are picking these fights. The more fights we see with more fighters fighting means we can pick more confidently. Plus its a good strategy to grow the Strikeforce brand. If, in fact, that's what Zuffa wants to do
