Strikeforce’s second round with CBS primetime network exposure is set to happen a short, 3 hour drive away from Memphis in Nashville, TN on April 17TH, 2010.  Just looking at this shaping fight card makes me so happy I could kick a baby into a fire and still smile.  The Headlining bout will be the Middleweight title fight between current champ Jake Shields and former UFC and PRIDE star Dan Henderson . Co-main event honors are shaping up to be Light Heavyweight title match between Gegard Mousasi and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal. The cherry on top will be another title fight, this one in the Lightweight division, between Gilbert Melendez and SHINYA AOKI!!!! That’s right, you read it correctly. Shinya is finally going to fight in the States, and its a 200 mile drive from my house!! To make things even better it is rumored that (#7 HW**) Andrei Arlovski, who just signed with Strikeforce, could be fighting “Bigfoot” (I’m guessing [#19 HW] Antonio “Junior”) Silva on the same card! Junior is the only Silva I know of on the Strikeforce roster in the HW division. I really hope nothing falls through on this card. I also hope that the rumor mill gets one thing wrong… Herschel Walker is rumored to fight some random ock named TBA. I wonder if this TBA is one of the 4 random ocks Mike Valley beat up. Either way I can’t wait to trek to Nashvegas and watch Shinya, Mousasi, and Hendo do work.

If you don’t know some of these names, I’d like to take this moment to issue my condolences for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family as you go through this truly trying time. The loss of one’s manhood can be a truly debilitating experience, and can leave you feeling worthless. As a courtesy and a supplement to prayer I cordially invite you to partake in some videos of the aforementioned world ranked fighters. Not a single person tagged in this post is ranked worse than 20th in the world in his respective division.
