The UFC, Strikeforce, and Scott Coker looking forward to working together

With the UFC officially announcing that Zuffa LLC. have purchased rival mixed martial arts promotion, Strikeforce, all sides look to be on the same page, looking forward to working together to further push MMA into the limelight.

UFC co-owner, Lorenzo Fertitta said:

“We’ve long admired Scott Coker and the Strikeforce business he launched and developed. We feel that together with Scott, we can continue to build both Strikeforce and the UFC. We intend to operate Strikeforce as a separate business much like we did with the WEC for many years. We look forward to working with Scott Coker and the entire Strikeforce and Showtime teams to continue to provide quality content for mixed-martial-arts fans.”

Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker added:

“This is an important day for the sport of mixed martial arts. We are excited to work with Lorenzo Fertitta, Frank Fertitta, Dana White and everyone at the UFC on the quest to make MMA the biggest sport in the world. Fans can continue to expect quality Strikeforce shows, and we look forward to giving our athletes an even broader platform on which to perform.”
