    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Aoki-Melendez confirmed for Strikeforce’s April 17th event

    http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Aok...ikeforce-22959

    Confirmed fights:

    Aoki-Melendez
    King Mo-Mousasi
    Jake Shields-Dan Henderson

    Shaping up to be an awesome card. Three massive fights. Already looking better than most of what UFC is putting out these days.

    Lets see if Aoki can refrain from being a douchebag and just show us his sick jits.

    I'm really interested to see the result of Hendo vs Shields, it'll answer a few questions I have about Shields as a fighter :)

    Fight of the year, as far as I am concerned.

    Except whatever Wandy does. MMA without Wandy is just not MMA.

    Those are my picks as well. Though I was like 1 out of 4 the last time I did this.

    Sweet! Great to see Aoki fight outside of Japan for once.

    If your questions about Jake Shields are:

    Is his wrestling better than above average?

    Does he have KO power?

    Is his chin solid?

    Would he be a champion in the UFC?

    The answer to all of them is "NO." You don't need Hendo for that.

    Dan Henderson will push Jake Shields around more than Robbie Lawler did. Melendez is pretty strong for his weight, and while I like Aoki overall I can see Gilbert Melendez grinding out a decision.

    Andrei Arlovski vs Antonio Silva may be on this card as well

    I see Aoki submitting Melendez.

    Mousasi will tool King Mo, standing or on the ground...doesnt matter. He´s too skilled for Mo at this point. I believe Gegard is an absolute phenom, born to be the next superstar in MMA.

    Henderson will KO Shields.

    I can see Aoki getting worn down and knocked out. If Melendez doesn't put him away after the 3rd round, Aoki will probably take it.

    Mousasi is a beast. I don't see King Mo even taking him down.

    Hendo is good at grinding out fights, and he has KO power. I don't see Shields subbing him, so I think Hendo takes it fairly easily.
