Champ Jake Shields vs. Dan Henderson (for middleweight title) - I like Jake Shields but he isn't a middleweight, he is a top 10 welterweight. I could see Shields maybe submitting Hendo but more than likely, Hendo is gonna beat him up reall good. I won't be surprised by a TKO in rounds 3 or 4, but I'll take 'Decision' Dan by decision.
Champ Gilbert Melendez vs. Shinya Aoki (for Strikeforce lightweight title) - I love Aoki, & I am so happy he is fighting stateside but this doesn't look good for the #2 ranked lightweight in the world. Aoki's Japanese style Jiu-Jitsu is incredible to watch, & I would love to se him sub Gil but I can't pick him to win because of his chin. Melendez trains out of Caesar Gracie's camp & should know enough to stay out of submissions, his striking has gotten so much better & I can see him tagging Aoki & putting hium to sleep. Melendez by KO, rd. 1.
