April 11 Strikeforce-Showtime broadcast to be countered with UFC 94 replay

Quote:
Strikeforce's debut on Showtime won't go unchallenged.

The organization's April 11 "Shamrock vs. Diaz" card, which takes place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., won't be the only MMA event on cable television that night.

****e TV and the UFC will counter the broadcast with a replay of UFC 94, a January pay-per-view event that featured the long-awaited rematch between UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and lightweight title-holder B.J. Penn.

The broadcast marks the first time UFC 94 has been available on basic cable TV.

Strikeforce, long considered the most successful MMA organization outside the UFC, recently acquired select assets from the the parent company of the defunct EliteXC organization. Strikeforce picked up more than 40 fighters' contracts, as well as the Showtime deal.

While Strikeforce Promoter Scott Coker and UFC President Dana White have always maintained an amicable relationship, they'll fight it out for viewers on April 11.

Strikeforce offers an intriguing main event between former UFC and Strikeforce champion Frank Shamrock and lightweight stand-out lightweight Nick Diaz, who meet at a catch-weight of 179 pounds. Other top match-ups includes Strikeforce world lightweight champ Josh Thomson vs. Gilbert Melendez, Joe Riggs vs. Jake Shields, Scott Smith vs. Benji Radach and Hitomi Akano vs. Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos.

Strikeforce viewers will need a paid subscription to Showtime, a premium cable channel.

Meanwhile, in addition to St. Pierre vs. Penn, UFC 94 featured Lyoto Machida vs. Thiago Silva, Stephan Bonnar vs. Jon Jones, Karo Parisyan vs. Dong Hyun Kim and Nate Diaz vs. Clay Guida. The event will air on ****e TV, a basic-cable station.

The head-to-head programming is a first for Strikeforce and the UFC. However, the UFC has twice battled Affliction Entertainment's pay-per-view broadcasts.
