Sherdog.com interviewed Dan Henderson on his upcoming challenge against current Strikeforce Middleweight Champ Jake Shields. Henderson spoke on his game plan for the fight and his personal feelings on Shields. What caught my interest was when he was asked about the UFC counter-programming Strikeforce. Henderson had this to say:
“I don’t think they realize, if they really piss CBS off, how much CBS will muscle, get behind it [Strikeforce]. Scott Croker made Dana White Employee of the month for Strikeforce. Bottom-line its childish playground tactics that fans can see through”
The UFC vs Strikeforce war is starting to boil. Does Strikeforce have the backing to keep up with the UFC’s new pace?
