MARCH 2 - Mauro interviewed CBS Vice President of Programming Kelly Kahl - Highlights:
- Announcing that Herschel Walker will likely not be on the Strikeforce CBS card.
- Fedor Emelianenko not being on the card because of M-1 disputes.
- Whether or not CBS will air more MMA content other than the 3 fights themselves.
- A possible fourth title fight added to the CBS [May 15th] card between Brett Rogers and Alistair Overeem (also confirmed by Alistair Overeem, comment available in podcast).
"Well I know what you're asking yourself. Didn't Brett Rogers lose his last outing against Fedor Emelianenko and now he's fighting for the title? Well that appears to be the case. And one of the reasons of course is what we alluded to with Kelly Kahl, the status of Fedor Emelianenko with Strikeforce. We know there have been issues going on with Emelianenko's promoter M-1 Global. The relationship with Strikeforce said to be maybe not as rock solid as it would appear but when reached for comment. The source at Strikeforce said no comment but hopefully something’s will be cleared up in the near future."
