Fight news strikeforce miami recap

Strikeforce: Miami was a mixed martial arts event held by Strikeforce on January 30, 2010 in Sunrise, Florida, United States at the BankAtlantic Center. The event aired live on Showtime in the US and on Super Channel in Canada.



A bout between Bobby Lashley and Shane Del Rosario had previously been agreed upon, however the fight was scrapped from the card. Bobby Lashley was then expected to face Yohan Banks, however the bout needed commission approval, which was subsequently denied. Jimmy Ambriz was then targeted by the promotion as late replacement for Banks. However, Strikeforce decided not to go with Ambriz, despite being cleared by the Florida State Boxing Commission. Wes Sims stepped in on short notice to fight Lashley.

The bout between Joe Riggs and Jay Hieron was scheduled to air live on but the load on the server brought down the stream.

The event drew an estimated average of 517,000 viewers on Showtime.
