Strikeforce stars are heading to the small screen once again -- though it won't be for a Showtime or CBS "Saturday Night Fights" event. Sherdog.com reports that NCIS: Los Angeles will feature a mixed martial arts-themed episode that is expected to air this April.
Appearing will be a who's-who of current and former champions including newly signed middleweight Dan Henderson, lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez, former 155-pound kingpin Josh Thomson, ex-middleweight champions Cung Le and Frank Shamrock and former Elite XC titleholder KJ Noons.
Even "Big" John McCarthy is getting in on the action. From CBS.com:
NCIS: Los Angeles is a drama about the high stakes world of the Office of Special Projects (OSP), a division of NCIS that is charged with apprehending dangerous and elusive criminals that pose a threat to the nation's security. By assuming false identities and utilizing the most advanced technology, this team of highly trained agents goes deep undercover, putting their lives on the line in the field to bring down their targets.
Starring Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J, NCIS: Los Angeles airs Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. ET.
