ProElite sold to Strikeforce?

Filed under: Uncategorized — kneebar @ 2:11 pm

That’s what Michael Rome at Bloody Elbow is reporting, and it is huge news.  ProElite has some quality talent that will really add depth to Strikeforce.  I’m assuming that there are some nontransferrable contracts, which means some guys may get picked up by the UFC or other promotions.  All in all, this is fantastic news for fans.

Rome indicates that there is a possibility under the terms of the sale that CBS will still be promoting shows.  Strikeforce has a deal with NBC.  Where do they go from here?

There should be final confirmation of the sale and buyer at some point soon.
