Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker did a Q&A with reporters following last night’s Strikeforce: Los Angeles event and touched on a variety of subjects including Herschel Walker, Nick Diaz, Renato Sobral and Jake Shields’ future in the promotion and the fact that Strikeforce has zero interest in signing Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson.
Surprisingly, Coker is still pushing for the Sobral-Lawal fight, despite both fighters repeated assertions that they won’t fight each other.
Personally, I think Babalu should stay at middleweight and enter in the proposed 185-pound tournament Coker said the promotion will be putting on in two to three months.
