Scott CokerStrikeforce will hold an event on April 17 in Nashville, Tennessee, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker confirmed to MMA Fighting on Thursday, but details will not be officially revealed until the card is formally announced next week.

A matchup between middleweight champion Jake Shields and Dan Henderson, first reported in December and finalized earlier this week, is expected to headline the event, which will air on CBS or Showtime, after a matchup between top-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko and Fabricio Werdum, previously slated for April, was recently shifted to May.

Coker also ruled out a rumored April 24 event due to a boxing card scheduled to air on Showtime on the date.
