Frank Shamrock Now Targeting May, Not March, Return to Strikeforce

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Frank Shamrock said on a December edition of The MMA Hour that he was set to make his return to Strikeforce in March, but at Wednesday's Strikeforce: Miami media day, the veteran told MMA Fighting that his next fight has now been pushed back to May.

The simple reason for the switch is because the organization isn't holding a major Showtime event in March. Instead, they will put on another Challengers show on March 26.

"The Legend" still doesn't know who he will be facing just yet, but jokingly said that he hoped "it's another old guy." He did reiterate that he has already talked to Showtime and Strikeforce officials about resuming his career in a little over two months.

Shamrock (23-10-2) will be calling the Strikeforce: Miami action on Showtime this Saturday night along with Mauro Ranallo and Stephen Quadros.

Shamrock most recently lost to Nick Diaz via second-round TKO in April. He is 1-3 since defeating Cesar Gracie via first-round KO in 2006.
