Rumor: Strikeforce to be shut down (Update 11/3 card cancelled)

Arda Ocal ‏@arda_ocal
Rumor: @Strikeforce is shutting down effective immediately. I suspect at least Alvarez, Cormier, Rockhold jump to @UFC. Rousey?

I meant Gilbert Melendez in my last tweet, not Alvarez. Huge news if true, even if eventually expected

Rumors swirling re: plug being pulled on Strikeforce. No confirmation yet. But if it's true, was Showtime's call. They hold option for 2013.

Hearing @Strikeforce is being disbanded immediately. It is no more. Another promotion goes by the wayside

Sources close to informed us just moments ago that Strikeforce operations are set to cease and that the promotion is going out of business.

The rumor comes shortly after news broke that Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold (10-1 MMA, 9-0 SF) was forced to pull out of his title fight with Lorenz Larkin (13-0 MMA, 4-0 SF) due to a wrist injury.
