Strikeforce "Nashville" predictions

FREE high-quality MMA Saturday night!

Shields vs Hendo (submission 3rd) It's crazy how little respect Jake is getting! The guy is on a 13th winning streak, beating guys like Charuto, Jason Miller, Carlos Condit, Paul Daley, AND at 185lbs Okami and Lawler. What else do they want from the champ?? Is Henderson a BIG challenge? No doubt, but to completely dismiss Jake is ridiculous. The discussion around the fight centers on which round Jake is getting KOed. Dan is getting way too much respect, and Jake way too little...

Mo vs Moussasi (KO/TKO) It's carzy to go against Moussasi but I am going with MO for the big upset...

Melendez vs Aoki (KO/TKO) Melendez is gonna deliver us...

Enjoy the FREE fights...

Dan Henderson vs. Jake Shields.... sorry Celio, I think Dan is going to end Jake's streak. Hendo is a good enough wrestler to keep it standing if he wants, and all Jake has is his JJ, which is brilliant, but not enough to put away Hendo.

King Mo Lawal vs. Moussasi.... I think Mo has what it would take to beat Gegard. I hate going against a Fedor protege

Melendez vs. Aoki....Aoki edges out Melendez. Gonna be a close one.

Henderson by not being a vegetarian.
Gegard by relaxation and no emotion
Aoki- via rainbow bright pants explosion into arm break temper tantrum

Re: Strikeforce "Nashville" predictions

I was wondering if Strikeforce was going to get any love. I'm going with Henderson. I have no idea about the rest. I'm just going to enjoy a great show.

I've got to say I'm really ticked about the M-1 Global/Fedor antics though. Fedor should be fighting tonight. This is BS. Dana was right about those crazy Russians. Renegotiating after one fight?

Re: Strikeforce "Nashville" predictions

My worst night of picks ever I should have said:
Shields by wanting to hit meat eaters with pillows
King mo by a dry hump on emotionless meat
Melendez by a butt scoot assassination.

This sucked for me.
The BJJ guys i like got stopped by wrestlers and the wrestler got stopped by BJJ guys......

Celio,
great picks man. Odd for you to go against the grapplers though.

Actually I picked grappling as the decising factor in this card. Jake's grappling would neutralize & control (and possibly finish) Henderson, and Melendez BJJ would overcome Aoki JJJ.

Jake & Melendes may have started their combat sport career as wrestlers, but as MMA fighters they have trained under Cesar Garcie for years, Jake being a black belt. Henderson is a wrestler, Jake is a grappler, and Melendez is from a grappling camp
