Strikeforce's event at Nokia Theater last June has its drawbacks. But CEO Scott Coker has high hopes for next year. Plans to hold a 2011 event on LA is on the works.

As a part of the promo push for “EA Sports MMA,” the videogame maker officials finally convinced the CEO to do a show back in June. The “: Los Angeles,” event has received a smaller than the usual ratings. But on the brighter side of everything, it received good reviews from attendees and TV viewers. That’s why Coker is planning a return next year. The event is part of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). This is an annual trade show for the computer and video game enthusiasts.

Coker says he was indeed impressed by the one of a kind venue.

“We really did like the Nokia Theatre in L.A. Live,” Coker said. “It was a great format. That format is just perfect for the hosting of the event because of the staging and the way the stage was built and the way the whole thing was configured with the screens. Everything was just perfect.”

So why do people need to expect?

“I think we’ll definitely be back to the sometime next year.” he said. “I’d say the first or second quarter of next year.”

The original show featured Robbie Lawler vs. Renato “Babalu” Sobral as headliners, and a six-fight lineup that include Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos, Tim Kennedy and K.J. Noons.
