Moments ago, the conference call to promote Strikeforce’s CBS card on April 17 from Nashville, TN wrapped up, with guests Jake Shields, Dan Henderson and Gilbert Melendez. Shields and Henderson will be meeting for the middleweight title while Melendez will defend his lightweight title against Shinya Aoki. Also on the call was Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker. The group answered questions about the event including the mainstream growth of the sport, fight strategy, and more!
Featured on the card as well is Gegard Mousasi defending his Light Heavyweight Title against “King Mo” Muhammed Lawal and Jason “Mayhem” Miller taking on Tim Stout. My apologies for the audio being kind of wonky in the beginning, it sounded like every fighter was driving through a tunnel for the duration of the call. Either way, enjoy the entire audio uncut, which is just short of one hour!
