I'm considering going to this event; I think I can get a ticket for 27.25 with my student discount. Is that a good price?

I'd say so, thats cheaper than a ppv, and a 100 times better experience i'm sure.

Me too, he's more of a name than any listed on the undercard and deserves to be promoted if definitely fighting. The guy has one of the best personalities in mma and a good skill set, and can hang with almost anyone in his division, imo.

Go bro! I'm going and my tickets were $33 ($25 + $8 tax fee to Ticketmaster). Yeah I'll be in the nose bleed section but there will be big screens to watch the fight and the atmosphere will be amazing. Adrenaline will be pumping the whole night it's almost like a high. If you can go definitely go the experience is unforgettable.

+ This card is sick and a guy on the undercard (Thomas Campbell) my friend actually knows.

This should be a good event, even with no Fedor on the card they've managed to turn this into a good night of fights. Strikeforce has a chance to capitalise on what some fans thought was a dissapointing PPV last week for the UFC in Abu Dhabi.

Aoki vs. Melendez

Very tough to call. Aoki is the man in Japan but Melendez is one tough SOB. Melendez certainly has the upper hand in striking and if he can keep Aoki at a distance he has a very good chance at defending his title. Melendez also has his wrestling but in my opinion as soon as this hits the ground Aoki will grab onto him and not let go until Melendez is tapping to some kind of sub.

I think Aoki is going to rush in and try for the takedown straight away, and as long as he doesn't get caught on the feet I think he'll get it and win. Aoki to be the new Strikeforce champ.

King Mo vs. Gegard Mousasi

King Mo is a big underdog and rightly so, but he does have a lot of potential and with his boxing and wrestling I really wouldn't be surprised if he could win this. However it's more likely that Gegard will manage to find an opening in King Mo's defence and rock him, before finishing him off with some ground and pound. Gegard could even catch him in a sub if King Mo gets sloppy after a couple takedowns.

Gegard by TKO round 2.

Jake Shields vs. Dan Henderson

This is just a horrible match up for Shields, really. Henderson has a big advantage on the feet so Shields would normally go for the takedown in this instance. But can he take Henderson down, and even if he does, can he keep him there? I doubt it, he won't be able to dry hump his way to a decision like he did against Mayhem. Henderson is just the superior fighter.

Expect Shields to have a few takedown attempts stuffed before being blasted on the feet. Henderson to become the new Strikeforce middleweight champion.

Completely agree. I have Hendo, Mousasi and Aoki winning tonight.

F*cking Worst Card Ever!!!!!!!
Not the first time for this org. I watched a top notch King Of The Cage fightcard on Friday, and all but one that they showed went to the judges. This mess that was on CBS seemed to be epic fail in my humble opinion and was a great disservice to the sport. All those joe-sixpackers that were on the fringe about MMA might not be sold on all the things we've been trying to preach the gospel on the goodness of MMA.
