Cagewriter - Mixed Martial Arts

Showtime is facing a major decision about its future with Strikeforce. Now it has to make the decision without the guy who's steered the ship since 2003. Hershman left his position as executive vice president and general manager for sports and event programming with Showtime for the president's gig with HBO Sports.

What does that mean for the future of mixed martial arts at Showtime? It seems like Strikeforce is on its last legs. Who will take Hershman's position and will they have an interest in the MMA business if it's not the UFC? Yahoo! Sports' lead MMA writer Kevin Iole gives us the lowdown on what the future holds for Showtime, and HBO.

Iole also gave us his take on what happens on the boxing side with Hershman at HBO.
