Strikeforce Returns to CBS on April 17; Fedor vs. Werdum in Doubt for May 15 Event on Showtime

Strikeforce LogoStrikeforce will return to CBS for its recently-confirmed April 17 event in Nashville, Tennessee, while an event is also in the works for May 15 in St. Louis, Missouri that would air on Showtime, Sherdog today reported.

The April 17 card is set to include the Strikeforce debut of Dan Henderson against middleweight champion Jake Shields, and is also likely to feature light heavyweight title-holder Gegard Mousasi vs. Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal and the return of Herschel Walker.

Fedor Emelianenko’s anticipated matchup with Fabricio Werdum, previously expected for April before being postponed on Thurday, is in doubt for the May 15 event, as Emelianenko’s management is attempting “to re-tool terms of Emelianenko‚Äôs existing contract with Strikeforce,” according to Sherdog.
