Now Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker has come out naming the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California as the venue and city for the event.
Coker was a guest on the ‘Inside MMA’ program and revealed the news, he did not though, name an opponent for that bout, preferring to announce that later this week. So something to look forward to from Strikeforce.
“Daniel Cormier will be fighting on September 29th, on Showtime. It’s going to be live from the ARCO Arena in Sacramento. But the opponent hasn’t been determined. We’ll probably have that figured out, probably by this week . But Daniel Cormier will be fighting on Showtime, on the 29th, in the ARCO Arena, in Sacramento.”
The Strikeforce CEO also addressed some of the issues headlining news pages around the net, offering some more insight into the deal between Zuffa and Showtime about which fighters are bound to Strikeforce.
