It seems that the fighters who were involved in the post-fight ruckus at “Strikeforce:Nashville,” are continuing to be haunted by their actions. First Jason Miller was kicked off the headliner spot next month’s “Strikeforce: Los Angeles” card. Now Nick Diaz has also been refused a spot on Strikeforce’s June 26th card.
A source close to Diaz reported recently that fighter had been denied a spot on the card, because of his role in the brawl at the event.
Strikeforce’s CEO Scott Coker also reported that Diaz or anyone else involved in the incident, had been on the list to fight in June.
“No one in that was involved with that situation was scheduled to fight in June,” he said. “But if they were … until the Tennessee Athletic Commission has the hearing and gives out suspensions and fines, we’re going to wait and support [the commission].”
However, Coker had spoken about a possible bout between Jason Miller, and Robbie Lawler, but earlier this week, Miller was instead replaced with Renato “Babalu” Sobral, and “Mayhem” most likely will not be on the card because of the fight in Nashville.
