Who can forget the nightmare that was Strikeforce Nashville?
What was supposed to be MMA’s big network TV debut quickly turned into a disaster. Jake Shields defeated Dan Henderson in the main event but what transpired after during the post-fight interview was the real attraction.
Jason Miller would make his way to the center of the cage during Sheilds interview. Miller could be heard asking Shields for his rematch, but Shields’ teammates including the Diaz brothers and Gilbert Melendez didn’t take too kindly to “Mayhem’s” interruption and a riot ensued.
The Strikeforce Nashville riot is most likely the reason why MMA took so long to get back on network TV.
