Program reminder: Strikeforce Nashville April 17th 2010
This Saturday will mark Dan Henderson's Strikeforce debut as he's set to do battle with current middleweight kingpin Jake Shields. This will also mark Jake Shields first title defense since winning the belt with a unanimous decision over Mayham Miller. Many expect that if Hendo comes away successful in this fight that he'll make the jump to 205 and fight Gegard Mousasi, who will also be in action this Saturday. Gegard will be taking on up and comer King Mo Lawal in a fight surely to have fans sitting at the edge of their seats. The heavy hitting King Mo is coming into this looking to make a statement to the rest of the 205 division, but he won't have no easy task at hand. The dreamcatcher comes into this fight on a 14 fight streak and doesn't seem to want it to end now. Also on this card will be the highly anticipated North American debut of Shinya Aoki as he's set to goto battle with newly crowned champion Gilbert Melendez. It will be a champion versus champion as Aoki will look to unify his Dream lightweight strap. With more fights still to be announced one can't wait to see what other fights will be placed on this already stacked card. I highly suggest fans check it out, this card will be free on basic cable! Tune is fellow mma fans. Prior to Saturday night I will be posting my picks. Feel free to drop in your thoughts.
