DENVER, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MusclePharm Corporation, a Nevada corporation ("MusclePharm" or the "Company") (OTCBB: MSLP), an expanding U.S. healthy lifestyle company, is pleased to announce that it will be prominently featured during Saturday's Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley fight card, which takes place at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California and will be broadcast live on Showtime cable network.
MusclePharm will have significant mat placement in the cage for the event, which will be available live to Showtime's 16.5 million subscribers.
This will be Strikeforce's first major event since it was purchased by Zuffa, LLC ("Zuffa"), which is the parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Zuffa acquired Strikeforce on March 12. In the main event, Nick Diaz defends his welterweight title against challenger Paul "Semtex" Daley.
Thanks to his entertaining style and brash personality, Diaz has been involved in several of Strikeforce's most viewed telecasts on Showtime, which we believe will allow for greater exposure for MusclePharm during the broadcast.
The co-main event features current lightweight champion Gilbert "El Nino" Melendez fighting Tatsuya "Crusher" Kawajiri.
