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?
