Don't Expect Kimbo Slice To Appear At Strikeforce Anytime Soon

CEO of Strikeforce Scott Coker speaks to Sherdog about the internet street fighting legend:

“We had an option to exercise Kimbo’s contract from Pro Elite. Basically out of all those fighters we took, he was the only one that we didn’t grab – it was an option to take [Slice’s contract.] With that option, there was an expiration date on it. In the very beginning, we tried to have dialogue with them about trying to make the deal a little more realistic and we just couldn’t work it out. At the end of the day, if we would have worked it out, we would have exercised the option. I still think that we’ll continue the dialogue and at some point, if he really wants to fight in MMA, then we’ll let him fight for us. Why not? Why not put him back in the mix? We just need to talk about a different arrangement, that’s all.”
