"We were (negotiating) but UFC bought them out and never said anything to me about it. So it’s dead in the water. I'm disappointed. I was talking to a couple other federations but I really had my heart set on Strikeforce and I thought we had a deal. Real disappointed. (It) didn't break down until they sold out. I just had no idea, nobody ever said anything, Scott Coker never said anything to me. We had a deal on the table and we were just trying to fix a few things and the next thing I know they got bought out. It is what it is."
