Mayhem Miller likely facing suspension, but what about Shields, Melendez and the Diaz dummies?
Looks like the hammer’s about to fall on Jason “Mayhem” Miller for his role in the Strikeforce brawl two weeks ago. Miller has been scratched from the promotion’s June 16 event in anticipation of a suspension being handed down by the Tennessee Athletic Commission. He’ll be replaced in his bout with Robbie Lawler by Renato “Babalu” Sobral.
All I want to know is, if they suspend Miller for the relatively minor part he played in the post-fight dust-up, what can we expect for Strikeforce middleweight champ Jake Shields, as lightweight champ Gilbert Melendez and brothers Nick and Nate Diaz? After all, Shields threw the first strike and the other three stooges jumped in to beat Miller down to the canvas.
