Live Primetime Strikeforce MMA Event
READY FOR THE CHALLENGE: SHERDOG.com's Jake Rossen noted the November 7 event is just a "week ahead of UFC 105, a Spike broadcast, and two weeks ahead of both boxing's" Manny Pacquiao-Miguel Cotto bout and UFC 106. Rossen: "Maybe Strikeforce is gambling that the UFC won’t have the resources to assemble a show to create three consecutive weeks of programming. ... This leaves the UFC to counter in what they’ve clearly defined as an adversarial relationship with the network: minimal effort means some repackaged shows on Spike" (SHERDOG.com, 9/17).
