Shields/Melendez/Diaz/Mayhem brawl mars “StrikeForce: Nashville” on CBS

Normally, on the night of a major UFC or StrikeForce fight card, as the San Jose MMA Examiner, I post the results along with some news, notes, and my predictions. But on a night like this, that will not be the case. Following procedure just does not seem to fit the mood.

Major League Baseball, the NBA, the NFL, the NHL, soccer, and boxing have all had to deal with the black eyes their athletes have perpetrated on their sport through extracurricular fights. Mixed martial arts has, by and large, managed to avoid the bench-clearing brawls that have permeated all other major sports at various times. Now, an unsanctioned brawl has occurred on national television during a major MMA card. The consequences could be far-reaching.

In what should have been one of the greatest nights of StrikeForce Middleweight Champion Jake Shields’ fighting career, former title challenger Jason “Mayhem” Miller, StrikeForce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez, StrikeForce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz, and UFC fighter Nick Diaz made sure that it was not to be.

After defeating MMA legend Dan Henderson convincingly in their main event title fight, San Francisco resident Shields was being interviewed by CBS sportscaster Gus Johnson. The man Shields beat for the belt, Miller, stepped in and tried to hog the spotlight by asking the champ for a rematch. Shields’ camp, including Melendez and the Diaz brothers, took exception. Melendez pushed “Mayhem,” and Nick and Nate jumped in and started grappling and throwing blows. It was a full-fledged in-cage riot. The broadcasters voiced their disgust, and Johnson could be heard repeating, “Gentlemen, we’re on national television!” It was one of the lowest moments the sport has experienced thus far.

Brawl After “Strikeforce: Nashville” Brings Smiles To Dana White’s Face

April 18, 2010

UFC president Dana White was eating crow all week after his middleweight superstar, Anderson Silva, made a mockery out of the organization’s most monumental show. Time heals all wounds and thankfully for Octagon brass, they only had to wait a week for the “Strikeforce: Nashville” circus to roll into MMA’s town.

Fans inside the Bridgestone Arena on Saturday night witnessed the worst riot in mixed martial arts history after middleweight champion Jake Shields handed Dan Henderson a lopsided unanimous decision loss.

While trying to give his celebratory speech, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, the man Shields defeated for the open 185-pound title at “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers” in November, lived up to his nickname by jumping in and stealing the champ’s spotlight.

“What’s up, where’s my rematch,” Miller questioned.

Shields didn’t take too kindly to Miller’s antics and charged him. Miller came rushing back but was rudely greeted by Shield’s entourage, which included Strikeforce champs Gilbert Melendez, Nick Diaz and about a dozen other homies.

Although the UFC was countering the CBS broadcast with a first-time replay of UFC 110 on Spike TV, Dana White took a brief moment to comment on his rival’s second primetime show minutes after the chaos ensued.

:) ” — White sarcastically Tweeted.
