It's confirmed! No Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix on April 9. But fans are in for Nick Diaz vs Paul Daley and Gilbert Melendez vs Tastuya Kawajiri title bouts.

Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker, confirmed that the second Heavyweight Grand Prix will be postponed until June 18. According to his prepared statement, the reason for such delay was to properly capitalize on the success of its Strikeforce: Fedor vs Silva.
