“We all know beautiful women sell, and we all know watching guys beat each other up will get people to open their wallets, so let’s combine the two!” Or so goes the clever marketing folks’ train of thought at the Strikeforce headquarters. Sex and violence meet September 29th in Beverly Hills when Strikeforce holds its next event at the Playboy Mansion. The card is scheduled to contain a match between Gilbert “El Nino” Melendez and Josh “The Punk” Thompson.
The press announcement did not divulge whether the event will be on Showtime or on Showtime ppv, as the Baroni vs. Shamrock card was. For guests and fans who are on-site that day, there will be a poker tournament and wine tasting. Talk about an exclusive MMA event!
