Jason “Mayhem” Miller vs. Tim Stout set for “Strikeforce: Nashville”

NASHVILLE (April 6, 2010) – A middleweight (185 pounds) matchup between Jason “Mayhem” Miller (22-7) and Tim Stout (12-8) has been added to the STRIKEFORCE Nashville: Henderson vs. Shields event which will be broadcast Live on the CBS Television Network (9-11 p.m. ET/PT) from the Bridgestone Arena here on Saturday, April 17.

The bout between Miller and Stout will be shown on the CBS Television Network in part or, time permitting, in its entirety.

One of MMA’s most eccentric personalities, Miller, known as much for his choreographed ring entrances as he is for his superior wrestling ability, has become a household name as host of the MTV smash hit reality series, Bully Beatdown.

Miller will attempt to re-enter the win column after losing a hard-fought STRIKEFORCE middleweight championship battle to Jake Shields by way of unanimous decision at Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, on Nov. 7, 2009. Miller nearly submitted Shields with a rear naked choke in the second round before the bell sounded to end the round.

The 31-year-old Stout, of Mountain City, Tenn., is coming off a dominant, three-round unanimous decision victory over Phillip Wyman in Atlanta, Georgia on Feb. 27.

In televised STRIKEFORCE world title fights, legendary MMA superstar and two-time U.S. Olympic wrestling competitor Dan Henderson (25-7) will challenge STRIKEFORCE World Middleweight (185 pounds) Champion Jake Shields (24-4-1), who has won 13 straight dating to December 2004, STRIKEFORCE World Light Heavyweight (205 pounds) Champion Gegard Mousasi (28-2-1) will defend his crown against undefeated MMA star and two-time NCAA All-American wrestling star “King Mo” Lawal (6-0) and STRIKEFORCE World Lightweight (155 pounds) Champion Gilbert “El Nino” Melendez (17-2) will risk his belt against DREAM champion and Japanese superstar Shinya Aoki (23-4).

    Miller should take this as he has the experience edge, and most of Stouts loses have been by submission. Glad to see Mayham on T V again.

    i love watching Mayhem fight, he’s been a favorite of mine for a long time.
    i just hope he’s in shape and doesnt take a needless loss to an opponent he should pretty much walk through all because Strikeforce cant put a fucking card together in good time!
    I been real patient with Strikeforce, i havent moaned once, but this is fucking ridiculously late. they gotta sort something out

  • fanoftna33 says:

    It is late for us to know but I am sure they gave Miller at least half an hour more notice than we got. By SF standards that is plenty of time to prepare.

    Glad it made the Televised portion… SF is in a world of it’s own.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    how can they even consider putting Mayhem on the undercard?

    The drunken gnomes that do the match making are still hungover from St. Patty’s day a few weeks back. I think that’s when they put together the worthless “non-title fight” that eventually morphed into the equally worthless “title fight” between Rogers and Overroid.
    One guy loses a championship bout decision, he gets bumped to the undercard, another guy loses a non-championship bout via KO and he gets a title shot. SF is turning into EliteXC…

  • hindsightufuk says:

    they sure are beginning to lose a lot of credibility, just the way EliteXC did. But as long as they have Nick Diaz, Gegard, Henderson, Mayhem, Fedor, i’ll keep watching

  • fanoftna33 says:

    Dont forget about King Mo, as he will be the next champ at 205.

    Guys… undercard as in not guaranteed to be televised. This fight WILL be on tv if there is time. None of the others have much of a chance to make it on.

    UFC Fight Nights (which NEVER have title fights) have the same 2 hours to play, and their main cards only have 4 fights on them. Is this fight in ANY way more important than a title fight (whether you feel the shot is deserved or not)? We have 3 titles here, each at 25 minutes. Do you really feel it’s smart for this company to say they have a 4th guaranteed fight, which might not air until the event is FAR over it’s alloted 2 hours?

    A lot of you are talking about how you don’t understand Strikeforce’s decisions, or saying they are stupid. Maybe you should figure out that you don’t understand it which is part of why you aren’t there making the decisions.

  • LiverPunch says:

    danw84 it sounds like you think. Every body else…not so much.
    If you want SF to act like the UFC just watch the UFC and stop bitching that SF dosn’t. If they had the exclusive contract fighters, the fan base, the money and stability of the UFC maybe you could moan and be justified in doing so but to bitch about an MMA org trying to do the best with what it’s got, and doing realy well I might add, is getting a little old and boring. If you are wondering why Mayhem might not make tv just read danw84 and as for the title fight, Fedor can’t fight for the title because A) Fedor is having contract on going contract negotiations and B) he is penciled in to fight Werdum. And if I was Werdum I would want a crack at the P4P king before a shot at guy who is really not much of a champ and a title that most of you don’t really value. So who else would you put up for the shot? tell me because I think a few of you think you could do a better job.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    the way i see it is Mayhem is a draw, and a very good fighter, why try and squeeze him on this card at the last minute? if there is time over on the live event stick one of the lesser known prelims on to give someone a chance to shine. Keep Mayhem until the next card when he has ample time to prepare, a better opponent to fight, and its guaranteed to air. shit make him the main event on a challengers card, just let people see a good fighter fight
