With Affiliation currently and indefinitely out of the game, Scott Coker and STRIKEFORCE have just taken a big step up by securing a contract with the most sought after fighter in the world.

“We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with M-1 Global and Fedor,” said STRIKEFORCE Founder and CEO Scott Coker, a martial arts fight promoter of over 25 years. “Fedor has been the reigning king of MMA’s heavyweight division for quite some time now so being able to work with M-1 and Fedor will substantially increase the level of competition amongst the athletes in this weight class.”
