However, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said on Monday's episode of The MMA Hour that the organization isn't interested in signing "Hurricane."
"I talked to my guys about it, actually, they talked to me about it," Coker said of signing Harris. "I watched the fight [against Falcao], I didn't know how to judge it. Then they told me about his background and his past and things you are telling me now, that this guy is a tremendous athlete (who) has a ton of potential and just had bad showing or fought very cautious to try and win the fight.
"The only thing right now is we are really committed to the fighters we have under contract now and I want to make sure these guys get in the mix two or three next year. That doesn't mean we can't revisit with him, but for right now, I would say that I want to take care of the roster we currently have."
Strikeforce's middleweight division is arguably the organization's deepest, featuring the likes Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, "Mayhem" Miller, Tim Kennedy, Robbie Lawler, Cung Le and Matt Lindland.
The loss to Falcao's was Harris' first in 11 fights. The 31-year-old boasts a 17-3 record overall and defeated John Salter, Mario Miranda and Dave Branch in his first three UFC fights.
