Scott Coker Sets Deadline For Fedor Emelianenko, Insists He And Management Are Running Strikeforce

 

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker

 

"There?s still dialogue between us and Fedor?s people," Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said. "We?re hopeful we can get the take done as soon a possible. It?s an ongoing process to get him back. It?s been too long already." Coker has set a mid-May deadline for putting the match together, as there is a target date of June 26 in San Jose set for the fight and the company wants a full six weeks of promotion

Coker also commented on the Strikeforce/CBS relationship since the lackluster show a couple of weeks ago:

 

"You know the last time we did the show with them in November, after the show, we didn?t get to sit down and talk for another month or six weeks," Coker said. "We right now haven?t had any dialogue. We hope to talk with them about it in the next week to ten days."

Dana White and Erin Toughill have said that they believe Showtime is running Strikeforce. I suppose it could be directed at this website(though I'm just a nobody) since I've been posting about it recently because I think it's a legitimate question with some of the moves that Strikeforce had made in the past six months. Now Scott Coker addresses that issue:

 

"Strikeforce is run by Scott Coker, along with our management team," Coker said. "Ken Hershman is good for the sport. His commitment to the sport benefits everyone. The fans have more options. The fighters have more options. When fighters become free agents, they?re going to get some of them and we?re going to get some of them. But Strikeforce is run by me and our management committee."

The interesting thing in all of this is the whole Fedor Emelianenko fiasco. I mean how much longer is thing going to go on? Also, is there any direct correlation between being in no man's land in regards to CBS and not being able to hash out a deal with M-1. If what I've heard is correct, Fedor only fights on CBS cards. So if there is no more CBS, that could mean there's no more Fedor Emelianenko fighting for Strikeforce.

its only a matter of time before strikeforce says to hell with m1 global, fedor, and eventually the fans

 

if your going to pay the guy a ridiculous amount of money, at least make him fight. scott coker owns the business and he cant even keep his fighters in check. they are running the show and he is just there to get pushed around

If you check ythe nielsen rating you;ll see that the Strikeforce event he was in drew about 2.5 million viewers - spiking up to 4.8 million when fedor was actually on screen.

 

Fedor is the bggest draw in MMA - bigger than Lesnar - who is bigger than the UFC - and way bigger than Strikeforce.

 

Can't really make that comparison until the UFC makes a deal with a major network and does an event on free major network tv.

 

Sad as it is, I would guess a UFC show on one of the big three with the UFC HW title on the line with Lesner defending would probably draw more viewers.

We know Lesnar draws about as many PPVs as the UFC itself. In other words UFCs that feature Lesnar get twice as many buys.

 

But you are right about needing to wait for a comparable netwrk show.
