I'm going to the StrikeForce Nashville event on April 17th. There was really no question whether to go or not no matter the card since it's 1 hour from me and it's a major event. It's also my first ever MMA event. BUT I don't know what to make of the card. I'm a knowledgable UFC fan and I do watch StrikeForce and I'm familiar with Jake Shields/Hendo and Gegard/King Mo but I haven't seen much out of them to really form an opinion (except I know Hendo and Jake enough and know what they're capable of).

There's only 3 main card fights so far and I have no idea who Gilbert Melendez or Shinya Aoki is. Is this card just "meh" or should I be excited? Don't get me wrong I'm excited to go because I know the atmosphere will be crazy and adrenaline pumping but as for the actual card itself should I really be excited? I know StrikeForce is kinda bush league with the way they handle their champions and their weight classes aren't very organized but still.

I am listening to Mo Lawal on the Jason Ellis show on satellite radio, and I am REALLY, REALLY, REALLY excited to watch him fight Mousasi.


Be stoked you are going!!

Aoki and Melendez are two of the best LWs in the world that aren't signed to the UFC, you are in for a treat.

...Cool man. Have a blast. I was at UFC 88 here in Atlanta and it was incredible. (that's my avatar pic). Over 14k showed up from all over the place. Chi-town, NY, Cali, Vegas. It sucked seeing my boy Chuck get COMPLETELY shut off by Evans but it was still incredible. No matter where your seats are you still see it right in your face on the big screens. Now as far as Strikeforce's card...awesome. They have really beefed up with talented fighters. Strikeforce has pretty much drowned out the WEC...

honestly i don't like the UFC events as much as strikeforce. I went to UFC 104 in LA and it was awesome don't get me wrong but it was boring because there was at least a 10 minute break in between fights so that they could show more fights on PPV where as strikeforce, they put on exciting fights and the fights go right after each other.

and i think that there aren't as many casual fans at the strikeforce fights then there is at the UFC events.

these are my thoughts so if you don't agree, im sorry.

Shinya Aoki,is regarded by many as probably the best submission artist in mma today, Mousasi is an exciting fighter who trains with arguably the best pound for pound fighter in the world in Fedor Emelianenko.
Dan Henderson is the only fighter ever to hold two belts at the same time, and King Mo is a highly touted prospect. A lot of hardcore mma fans would chop off their own arm to see this event live, you've done well here, and think i'm right in saying that your seeing some of the best fighters in their respective divisions not currently fighting in the ufc.

I'll be going too (I'm only like 30 mins away from Nashville); this will also be by first MMA event, so I don't really know what to expect.

Just out of curiosity where do you live? I live in Hopkinsville Kentucky. I visit Clarksville often though.
