Shinya Aoki vs. Gilbert Melendez slated for April 17th in Nashville

Shinya Aoki vs. Gilbert Melendez slated for April 17th in Nashville

If you have no idea what Twitter is, today could get really annoying. This is the fourth Strikeforce fight announcement that has occurred on Twitter within the past hour. Shields confirmed what we somewhat knew and announced that he will defend his belt against Dan Henderson and King Mo will fight Gegard Mousasi at ‘moneyweight‘. Just a few minutes later, Loretta Hunt confirmed Andrei Arlovski signed with Strikeforce and his debut will be against a mythological creature known as Bigfoot Silva. Now Sports Illustrated’s (and my imaginary drinking buddy) Josh Gross has tweeted (twatted?) that multiple sources confirm that Melendez will defend his belt against the second best lightweight in the world, Shinya Aoki. The fight will be on the same card as Shields vs. Hendo, King Mo vs. Mousasi and it’s even rumored that even Herschel Walker will fight.
