"Is MMA becoming Professional Wrestling?", asks, calling the latest brawl after Strikeforce Nashville "embarrassing". Couldn't agree more - I'm beginning to wonder what this has to do with martial arts.

Here's what says:

Jake Shields defeated Dan Henderson in a successful title defense of the Strikeforce middleweight belt. After the victory, Jason "Mayhem" Miller came out to greet Shields in what seemed like a gentleman-like request to have a rematch with the champ Shields.

What happened from there onward was simply embarrassing.

Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez and Shields decided to shove Miller, which progressed to an all-out brawl that included Shields’s training partners Nate and Nick Diaz, as well as everyone else in the cage. Even though Shields "didn’t think it was that big a deal," the post-fight conversations in MMA have been increasing in cheesy antics reminiscent of WWE.
