Sources: Strikeforce Not Planning Australia Show

A recent report on the Brazilian MMA Web site Tatame stated that Strikeforce was planning a show on July 17 in Australia, headlined by Josh Barnett (25-5) vs. Geronimo "Mondragon" Dos Santos (17-8).

However, sources close to the organization tell MMA Fighting that the report is untrue and that Strikeforce is not planning any show Down Under any time soon.

As MMA Fighting reported earlier this month, the organization is only planning to put on a Challengers event in July.

Below is a what Strikeforce's upcoming schedule looks like:

May 15: Strikeforce: St. Louis
May 21: Strikeforce Challengers in Portland, Ore.
June 16: Strikeforce: Los Angeles
June 26: Strikeforce in San Jose, Calif.
July TBA: Strikeforce Challengers
August TBA: Strikeforce on Showtime

Sources also tell MMA Fighting that the organization has no deal in place with Barnett at this time.
