Gilbert Melendez got injured and Strikeforce had to cancel the show, but the didn’t choose to do it. Showtime told Strikeforce that without Melendez there is no TV airing. Like UFC 151 the card heavily relied on the main event to get anyone interested, and it hardly did that. The good news is that UFC on Fuel 5 will be on Saturday afternoon, the bad news is so will marquee football games.
I’m going to DVR UFC on Fuel because I’ll be at a football game, then watch it at about 9. Which to me is the perfect time to start a main card anyway.
