Strikeforce’s April 11 show could be televised on Showtime


FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned that a tentatively planned Strikeforce event on April 11 at the HP Pavilon in San Jose, Calif. could potentially be broadcast on Showtime.

A source speaking on the condition of anonymity has informed Five Ounces of Pain that despite reports to the contrary, existing television contracts between EliteXC and partners CBS and Showtime were not acquired as assets in Strikeforce’s completed deal to acquire select assets from ProElite.

However, the source indicated that talks between Showtime and CBS have been ongoing with Strikeforce and a deal to televise Strikeforce is considered likely to be finalized.

Five Ounces of Pain has also confirmed that a fight planned for the April 11 event will feature Benji Radach vs. Scott Smith in middleweight action. It is also believed that talks are currently taking place for Frank Shamrock to headline the event against a yet to be determined opponent.
