On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with our colleagues and correspondents Chris Thomas and Bob Carson about the April 17 Strikeforce mixed martial arts card held in Nashville, Tennessee, and shown live in the U.S. on CBS. Bob Carson is also the host of Carson's Corner.
We spoke right after the telecast concluded. We discuss the breakout performance by "King" Mo Lawal, who decisioned Gegard Mousasi to capture the Strikeforce light heavyweight belt. We analyze the dominating performance by Gilbert Melendez over Shinya Aoki to retain his Strikeforce lightweight belt. We examine the upset victory by Jake Shields over mixed martial arts veteran Dan Henderson to retain his Strikeforce middleweight belt. We discuss the disgraceful riot which took place in the cage immediately following the Shields-Henderson fight, and what both Strikeforce and the Tennessee Athletic Commission must do in response. And we evaluate what this all means for Strikeforce and the state of mixed martial arts.
