Strikeforce President Scott Coker has been running Strikeforce since Day 1, and now that the promotion is in the sunset portion of its life cycle, many are wondering what will happen to Coker when the final bell rings on Saturday night in Oklahoma. UFC President Dana White has indirectly said to the media that he had no idea what will become of Coker, but its clear from the tone of White’s voice that he doesn’t like the way the dust settled with the Strikeforce. Coker recently told the media that he focused on Saturday night, and after that he will need to meet with Zuffa to figure out the future holds.
Coker told MMAFighting about what he plans to do on Sunday:
“I wake up and head home, and watch the NFL playoff game. I do have a contract with Zuffa which I intend to honor and so do they. We’re going to work together on the duties and responsibilities. Ariel, honesty, I’ll probably fly to Las Vegas in the next ten days or so and we’ll probably work it out. But my effort is trying to have a great show on Saturday night.”
