Strikeforce: Nashville event ends in brawl, tarnishes company

While Gus Johnson was interviewing the victorious Jake Shields, Jason Miller - the man Shields had just defeated - came back into the cage and a melee soon followed.

Strikeforce is already considered by many to be a second-rate organization and incidents like this one only further that reputation. You can't blame the company for the actions of one man, but the majority of Strikeforce's publicity - especially to an audience that isn't very familiar with MMA - will revolve around Miller's actions.

You can hear Gus Johnson lamenting the incident in the video, saying things like, "Oh God" and "Gentlemen, we're on national television!"
