Updated: Strikeforce Fighters Didn't Know of Cancelled Show Until Press Release Hit

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Until press release reached inboxes and word got out on Twitter, the Strikeforce fighters scheduled for Nov. 3rd card did not know of cancellation. Tweets and short quotes from Dan Cormier, Jason High, Tim Kennedy.

The November 3rd Strikeforce show that once had Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir as headliners has been cancelled according to a press release the fight organization released.

And the fighters involved in the card didn't know about it until the press release hit inboxes all around the MMA media world.

Cormier spoke to Helwani for a short time and the Mike Chiappetta piece on the Strikeforce cancellation features a quote from that conversation:

"I wish somebody would have told me something," he told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani. "This is unbelievable. I'm very upset. I just want to be informed. That's all. I don't think that's asking for too much."

Cormier would later tweet out some inspirational words, which Jason High (also fighting on the card) immediately agreed with.

No public word has come from Jorge Masvidal, Bobby Green or Liz Carmouche right now. Or Tim Kennedy and Trevor Smith.

Kennedy proved to be kind of prophetic in his own way, when he responded to a fan asking if he was still fighting on November 3rd just a day ago:

UPDATE: Tim Kennedy just tweeted about the situation - he didn't know anything either:
