Multiple sources confirm Gilbert Melendez will fight Shinya Aoki on the April 17 CBS card in Nashville.

While this is a fight that will satisfy many hardcore fans, it's still not a huge ratings draw for Strikeforce although it looks to be a good card on paper thus far.  This event could potentially feature 3 title fights:

-Shinya Aoki vs. Gilbert Melendez

-Gegard Mousasi vs. King Mo Lawal

-Dan Henderson vs. Jake Shields

Give me your thoughts on the Melendez/Aoki match up.  Do you think Aoki will wear the the same type of gear that George Sotiropoulos sported at UFC 110, since he can't wear this rainbow pants?
