LGIO tournament champions will earn Strikeforce contracts

    VALENCIA, Calif. --- March 28, 2010 - LET’S GET IT ON MMA (LGIO) today announced that it has struck a major deal with STRIKEFORCE, one of the leading promotions in the MMA industry. In addition to the $25,000 prize money awarded to both the Canadian 155-pound and 170-pound LGIO tournament winners, STRIKEFORCE will award both champions fight contracts in its Challenger Series.

    The first round of the LGIO 170-pound WEST tournament will kick off on April 23, 2010 at the River Cree Resort and Casino, on the outskirts of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

    Through an exclusive deal with Scott Coker, CEO of STRIKEFORCE, LET’S GET IT ON MMA’S Promoter, Elaine McCarthy has gone where few promoters fear to tread — embracing another promotion.

    “I know that some Canadian promotions consider other promoters threats and rivals, and they circle their wagons to defend their territory. I believe that promotions can work together to create a win-win scenario for everyone. Scott Coker is giving our winning athletes a chance in a bigger show with bigger competition which is great for the sport,” says McCarthy.

    “With the contracts STRIKEFORCE awards, we hope to further the careers of two young fighters who have the potential for a bright future in the sport,” said STRIKEFORCE Founder and CEO Scott Coker.

    STRIKEFORCE boasts an impressive array of fight talent including Gegard Mousasi, Andrei Arlovski, Gilbert Melendez, and Brett Rogers, amongst others. Dan Henderson, who recently signed with STRIKEFORCE, will be making a special guest appearance at McCarthy’s April 23rd show one week after he takes on STRIKEFORCE Middleweight Champion Jake Shields live on the CBS Television Network on Saturday, April 17.
