MMAWeekly.com speaks to Scott Coker who has the news on when the top lightweight may debut in the USA:

Shinya Aoki could make his Strikeforce debut in March, according to the San Jose, Calif.-based promotion’s CEO.

Scott Coker on Monday told MMAWeekly.com that “dialogue was continuing” with Aoki’s camp and follow-up meetings were planned during a trip to Japan for Dynamite! Dream vs. Sengoku on New Year’s Eve.

“I do believe Aoki will probably be here fighting for Strikeforce in March sometime,” he said.

Coker said a Showtime-broadcast card on Jan. 30 in Sunrise, Fla., is nearly filled, though he declined to confirm an April CBS card rumored by the promotion’s signing of Dan Henderson on Monday morning. He did, however, tell AOL Fanhouse that the months of March, April, and May were targeted for events and February was excluded due to the Winter Olympics.
