One week into the polling on our "MMA 20 questions" feature, the majority of voters don't expect Strikeforce to last as a stand-alone fight promotion after its current deal with Showtime expires.

Perhaps the cancelations of its two most recent scheduled fight cards -- Sept. 29 (Gilbert Melendez vs. Pat Healy) and Nov. 3 (Daniel Cormier vs. Frank Mir) -- has something to do with that.

A whopping 69.8 percent of voters answered "NO" to this question: "Strikeforce will continue to exist beyond the life of its current broadcast deal with Showtime."

Continue to vote in the MMA 20 questions interactive whiich includes questions on Anderson Silva's future, Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen, Chris Weidman's title hopes, MMA in New York, TRT and more.

The poll will remain open through Monday, Nov. 12, and we'll post the final results on Tuesday, Nov. 13.
