It is said that the UFC is already in the process of setting up an April 17th UFC event with Spike TV. This of course is the same night that Strikeforce will be airing its CBS Shields vs. Henderson. This will be the first time the two promotions will be airing a live event simultaneously. In the past the UFC has beaten out Strikeforce views with just replays.
The event is already rumors to have a Mike Swick vs Matt Serra fight. The only problem with that match is that Swick has just got back yesterday from Thailand and is talking about undergoing surgery on his hand. Serra has just came off his Trigg KO victory and is for notorious for not fighting that close together.
Another rumor is that a Wanderlei Silva – Yoshihiro Akiyama is fight is in the works. Though it has been said that Wanderlei is asking to fight in his home town of Vegas on his birthday UFC 116 July 3rd.
Either way this can bring some problems to the sport. UFC will likely steal all the hardcore audience, leaving Strikeforce to be recorded(TiVo, DVR etc.) and watched by fans without cable.
