If you’re in the U.S and wanted to watch tonight’s Strikeforce Challengers 13 event live but don’t have a Showtime subscription then you’re in luck.

The event will be included tonight as part of a free ‘preview’ weekend by Showtime, making it available in some 61 million homes in North America.

The event is definitely worth tuning in for with rising stars like Tyron Woodley, Ovince St.Preux, Daniel Cormier and Julia Budd all featuring on the main card.

The free preview is also good news for Strikeforce. The last time Showtime did so back in March of 2010 ‘Strikeforce Challengers 7’s’ ratings were boosted 111 percent, up from 150,000 viewers to 316,000.

Hopefully a similar boost will be experienced this evening and give the fighters the chance to be showcase their skills to a wider audience.
