Wow, what a shame. After Jake Shields puts on the most impressive victory of his career over an MMA legend someone decided to let Mayhem Miller come in the cage asking for a rematch and then all hell breaks loose. It was an exciting, back-and-forth fight with Henderson starting like a bat out of hell and almost knocking Shields out in the first minute. Shields was able to recover and control the fight from the second round on with his amazing BJJ and takedown skills against the bigger Henderson. It was by far the most competitive fight of the evening with all 3 title fights going the distance. And then disaster struck. With the Diaz brothers and Gilbert Melendez in Shields' corner Jason 'Mayhem' Miller shows up in the cage asking Shields for a rematch. Miller is acting aggressive from the start and the pushing and shoving ensues. Fists started flying, bodies all over the place, kicks, punches, etc., and then CBS cuts the feed. Only those in the arena know the extent of what happened but the fact of the matter is this was a black eye to the sport as a whole. Gus Johnson said "sometimes this happens in MMA" but I can never recall something like this happening, and especially not on network TV. After the long, drawn out decisions and the lack of overall star power on this card one has to think this will be Strikeforce's final foray onto the network airwaves, with Mayhem Miller's juvenile act serving as the final nail in the proverbial coffin.
