Default Strikeforce still hopes to sign "Kimbo," Carano; in talks with Randleman

While Strikeforce put on an impressive display of in-cage talent at the "Shamrock vs. Diaz" pre-fight press conference on Thursday in Hollywood, Calif., two faces were noticeably missing.

Among the 40-plus contacts acquired by Strikeforce in the recent acquisition of several ProElite assets, the contracts of the ill-fated company's biggest stars -- Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson (3-1) and Gina Carano (7-0) -- remain unsecured.

On Thursday, Strikeforce founder and CEO Scott Coker said he still hopes to bring the two fighters aboard.

Coker was first asked about the enigmatic YouTube-star turned mixed martial artist "Kimbo Slice."

"Kimbo is a very popular star in North America," Coker said. "He's very recognizable, and he did a good job packing the stadiums when he fought.

"Right now there is ongoing dialogue with Kimbo. We'll see how that goes. I could probably answer that better in 14 days."

Slice fought four times for EliteXC in just under one year's time. The former street fighter headlined all but one of the events in which he appeared, though his marketability took a major blow in his 14-second loss to last-second replacement Set Petruzelli in October 2008.

The Strikeforce head was next asked about the status of WAMMA's co-No. 1 female fighter at 145 pounds, Carano.

"With Gina, I think you can equate it to a hold out at camp, so to speak," Coker said. "Camp's started, the game's on, and she's the hold-out."

Coker went on to state he felt positive that the undefeated "Conviction" would ultimately sign with the growing organization.

"These things happen in this business from time to time," Coker said. "We're in dialogue with Matt Walker, [Carano's] agent. I think things are moving forward, and there is good dialogue. We're hoping for the best."

Carano's fellow top-ranked fighter Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos (6-1) has already signed with Strikeforce and is scheduled to meet Hitomi Akano at the April 11 "Strikeforce: Shamrock vs. Diaz."

Coker told MMAjunkie.com ([Link View Has Been Removed. Click Here To Unlock This Content.]) he is hopeful Carano will be signed in time for the organization's still-unofficial May event.

"We're going to invite Gina to fight (in May) if we can put it together," Coker said.

Coker also clarified the current status of Strikeforce's negotiations with MMA legend Kevin Randleman (17-12), recently rumored to have signed with the organization.

"There's nothing signed," Coker said. "Obviously he's got to get licensed.

"We are talking to him, and we're hoping that we can get something done with him and get him back in the cage. But, he's got some licensing issues that he's got to take care of. Our hands are tied."

Randleman has not fought in the U.S. since an October 2006 loss to Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. Following the bout, the Nevada State Athletic Commission found Randleman's urine sample to be missing any human hormones, suggesting the sample came from either a deceased human or non-human donor.

"The Monster" later admitted to submitting a fake sample and was suspended by the NSAC.

Should be interesting to see if Slice can bounce back, or just fold every time he gets hit. And Gina is hot

There's no cure for a **** chin. I mean if he gets floored by a powder puff punch like the one Seth hit him with he'll probably have a stroke when someone really tags him.

Gina and Kimbo can definitely increase their profit.

Carano yes, Kimbo no. He (thankfully) got exposed as the fraud that he is and would probably only sign on the dotted line if they gave him opponents that had no arms or legs so that he wouldn't get hit on that weakass beard of his.

They don't have the rest of that Wolf clip on youtube anymore, but in it, the other chick is put from a stretcher onto an ambulance.


Check out the slo mo at :38

Gina would just front kick her into lunging in and then take her down, mount and pound her head into the mat. Carano by complete mutilation RD1.

And no cure for a lack of skill either.

The only reason Strikeforce wants Kimbo is that the internet street fighter fans are a decent source of income.

EliteXC made a mistake when they built their organization around someone who couldn't fight.

That all sounds a bit harsh, but it's really true. I like Kimbo as a person, it's just that he's not a good fighter.
