CBS has agreed to air its second Strikeforce event in April. A specific venue and date have not yet been decided, but many locations are being scouted all across the US according to an executive from the CBS network.
Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson are expected to appear on the fight card the source says. Henderson left the UFC to sign a four fight 16 month deal with Strikeforce earlier this month. Sherdog has heard rumors that he most likely will be fighting middleweight champion Jake Shields, in his debut this April.
Strikeforce event “Fedor vs. Rogers” made big ratings for CBS when it aired “Saturday Night Fights” November 7th.
5.46 million viewers watched the main event between Fedor and Rogers, which made it the 9th most watched live fight in US history.
