Guam – CBS Strikeforce brings you another night of fights this Sunday. Make sure to tune into KUAM-TV11 to catch the action.  KUAM Sports interviewed local boy Richard Chou, who is the matchmaker for Strikeforce, in Nashville, Tennessee, and asked him about the upcoming fights.

Chou said, “So far so good, we are expecting 10,000 people in the house this Saturday. We are featuring 3 world title fights on CBS leading off with our lightweight title fight between Gilbert ‘El Nino’ Melendez, who is the Strikeforce lightweight champion he will be defending his belt against Dream champion Shinya Aoki. After this last weekend with B.J. [Penn] losing a controversial decision this fight becomes that much more intriguing. I believe the winner of this fight will be the new #1 lightweight in the world. The fight was already interesting so we are looking for the #1 lightweight to come out of the fight this weekend.”

He continued, “We will also feature a light heavyweight title fight between Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi, who will be taking on King Mo. Not too many people know about Mo yet, but he is a world-class wrestler who is one of the best athletes out there and is certainly a worthy opponent for Gegard. Gegard has been on a roll and I think he has won his last 14 fights. He has the experience and we’re just expecting a great fight out here and in our main event it’s our champion Jake Shields defending his belt against the legend Dan Henderson.

“What more can you say about Dan?  He’s the man, he’s one of the few legends that continues to fight at a high level. Jake has been finishing guys lately and every time you think Jakes going to lose and you count him out he always proves you wrong. 6 world-class athletes all very technical, all very athletic and explosive.”

It’s going to be a great night of fights and everyone can tune in for free on CBS on KUAM-TV11.   It will be shown on KUAM-TV11 via satellite at 2pm with a repeat at 9pm.
