Strikeforce ‘Nashville’ Post-Fight & Post-Brawl Interviews

What the fuss is all about

MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani caught up with Jake Shields, Nick Diaz, Scott Coker, Mayhem Miller and King Mo following last night’s Strikeforce “Nashville” event to get their thoughts on the on the fights and the brawl after the Shields-Hendo fight. Gilbert Melendez addressed his involvement and his place in the lightweight rankings at the post-fight press conference. Around The Octagon got Mayhem’s reaction to the brawl.

To make a long story short, Mayhem says he had no intention of starting a riot in the cage, he was just trying to show his face and hype up a rematch. Meanwhile, the Cesar Gracie boys claim they were merely trying to get Shields’ back. He just fought 25 minutes in the cage, it was his spotlight, and if anyone was going to fight at that point it would be them. At the time of the interview, Scot Coker was still trying to figure out exactly what happened and what to do about it. Everyone involved apologized.
