LAS VEGAS– STRIKEFORCE® announced today it is planning its next card set to air live on SHOWTIME® in January 2013. Further information on the fight card and location will be announced shortly.
 
STRIKEFORCE also announced the cancellation of its Nov. 3 event at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla., due to injuries sustained by main event star Frank Mir and co-main event star Luke Rockhold. Refunds for tickets purchased are available at point of sale.
