Strikeforce Nashville Results – Shields Dominates Hendo

Strikeforce has three championship fights on the line tonight in Nashville, Tennessee.
In the first title bout, Mo Lawal worked the takedowns for five rounds and kept top position to become the new Strikeforce Light-Heavyweight champion.
In the second title fight, Gilbert Melendez dominated Shinya Aoki from start to finish.  Aoki had no offense the entire night.
In the Middleweight title fight, Dan Henderson dropped Jake Shields to win the first round.  However, Shields took Hendo down at will the rest of the fight and frequently had his opponent fully mounted.  Like his teammate Gilbert Melendez, Shields retained his belt.

At the end of the telecast, Jason Miller gets into the ring and a mini-brawl erupts between him and the Cesar Gracie team. Crazy stuff there!

    I think it was all planned it looked like some wwe sh*t to me. If strikeforce had any control over its fighters this wouldnt have happened. SO I think it was all a joke promoting the next fight schedule. strikeforce is a joke!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Outlaw… I don’t think they would risk that on CBS. MMA is still in its sports infancy and this fight made mma fighters look like street thugs rather than the athletes that they are.

    That finale was more WWE than MMA. Garbage. I’d expect that in Japan if anything, but it really hasn’t happened since Rua/Coleman has it?

    Sure it could’ve been promotional gold, but a 5 on 1 beatdown? Way to represent the sport. I’d equate that with the Toughman competitions. The sport is striving for legitimacy and this is the crap that gets shown.

    I guess the only hope is that there were more viewers on Spike than this debacle.

    Somewhere, wherever he may be… Dana White is laughing, and when I say that, I mean his abs are probably starting to hurt. Yeah, ‘any publicity is good publicity’ but having this happen on CBS national television was a complete mockery of StrikeForce and will just allow the UFC to excel even more… if you missed the fight, check it out at
    Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if Dan Henderson comes back to the UFC after that joke

    The card as a whole wasn’t bad, but I think the all 3 of the fights would have ended sooner if they were allowed to strike with elbows on a downed opponent. The brawl at the end was probably the most entertaining part of the show. LOL!!
