SAN DIEGO – Good news for fight fans who are eager to see the best from Strikeforce take on the best from the UFC now that Zuffa owns both promotions: there’s nothing stopping it from happening. It’s only a matter of who and when.
At least, that’s the story according to Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker, who seemed as anxious to see some cross-promotional dream fights as anyone after Saturday night’s Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley event.
“I think, you know what? Let the Strikeforce guys fight the UFC guys,” Coker said. “I’d love to see it. To me, Alistair Overeem versus Cain Velasquez? Let’s do it. Or Fedor fighting Brock Lesnar. …There’s nothing to say these guys can’t fight each other.”
