One Strikeforce Fighter Believes Promotion Needs More Cards Per Year

Jorge Masvidal is healthy and ready to return to the cage.

The only problem is, Strikeforce currently doesn’t have an opening for Masvidal. The lightweight, who is 23-7 in his career and 3-1 since joining the promotion last year, believes Strikeforce needs more cards per year.

“I just think Showtime doesn’t have enough shows to provide for the fighters they have under contract (to Strikeforce),” said Masvidal, during a recent interview with “Sean Shelby’s been helping me out as much as he can to get me on the cards, but I just don’t think they have enough shows on Showtime.”

Strikeforce currently has a card set for later this month, and another in the beginning of November. So far, that is it for the rest of 2012 unless another event is added.

As far as Masvidal is concerned, he is going to put himself in training just in case he’s called upon.

“I’m going to start training now for November just in case something happens and they need a 155-pounder or 170-pounder. I might even make myself available for 185 if they need me and they take care of me,” Masvidal said. “I’ll go up to 185 and kick (expletive).”
