Backstage With Scott Coker

Scott Coker is arguably one of the most powerful figures in mixed martial arts. He's also one of the most elusive ones, too. The Strikeforce CEO calls the shots for the upstart San Jose-based organization, but isn't as visible at events as other promoters.

In the latest installment of our ongoing "Backstage" series, MMA Fighting sat down with Coker prior to Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu II in St. Louis to discuss his history as a fight promoter, why he is hard to find on fight nights, what's next for Strikeforce and so much more.
