The CBS televised event will mark the promotion’s first-ever trip to "Music City" after successfully heading down south to Sunrise, Florida, with Strikeforce: "Miami" on Jan. 30, as part of its Showtime broadcasting deal.

Confirmed for "Saturday Night Fights" is a 185-pound title bout featuring current Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Jake Shields taking on former PRIDE champion and UFC import Dan Henderson.

Several of the promotion’s other top fighters will be in action on the card as well, including a lightweight title fight pitting Strikeforce 155-pound champion Gilbert Melendez against DREAM division title holder Shinya Aoki.

Fast-rising light heavyweight prospect Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal is booked to challenge for the light heavyweight strap when he takes on reigning champion Gegard Mousasi.

It’s going to be a great night of fights. If you live in the Nashville area be sure to snag your tickets as quickly as possible.

They go fast.
