Strikeforce Columbus: Feijao vs Henderson Poster and Card

By MMAPayout.com

With two of the most successful events for MMA on Showtime taking place in the last couple of weeks, there is no time for Strikeforce to take a breather.

Strikeforce is already preparing for their upcoming Challengers event this Friday in Austin, Texas, and just a few weeks later, the Strikeforce Columbus: Henderson vs Feijao event will take place, which has big implications for the company as they join the famed Arnold Sports Festival this year while making their promotional debut in Ohio.

No rest for the weary should be Strikeforce’s motto for 2011, already hosting 2 major shows and 1 Challenger event in the first 6 weeks of the year and gearing up for another Challenger event on Friday and the big Columbus event in conjunction with the Arnold Sports Festival in about 3 weeks. The key for Strikeforce is to keep the momentum going coming off hugely successful events in San Jose and New Jersey recently, to direct everyone to the now highly anticipated April 9th event which will host the second event of the Heavyweight Grand Prix, headlined by Alistair Overeem vs Fabricio Werdum and Josh Barnett vs Brett Rogers.
