Strikeforce Cancels ‘Strikeforce: Cormier Vs. Mir,’ Plans Next Card For January

Strikeforce officials have announced a second cancelled card in as many attempts.

The planned Strikeforce: Cormier vs. Mir event set for November 3 is now off due to injuries suffered by both Frank Mir and Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.

“Due to a series of injuries, we were forced to cancel the upcoming card on Nov. 3, but are already working to put together a stacked card in January,” Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said.

The promotion will focus its attention on that 2013 card to start the year. Rumors of the November event being in danger of cancellation have been floating around for weeks now, as no replacement for Mir was ever announced by Zuffa.
