The Tennessee Athletic Commission has launched an investigation into a post-event brawl that concluded the CBS-televised "Strikeforce: Nashville" event at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville this past weekend.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today contacted Jeffrey Mullen, the commission's director, who declined to comment on the situation until the commission's investigation is complete.

No timetable was given, but the investigation could lead to disciplinary action for those involved.

Coker might have to answer to CBS on this one, regardless of the outcome, if StrikeForce is to be broadcast on that station in the future.

They should fine Miller, Shields, and the Diaz brothers for misconduct or something.
They should fine Strikeforce for not having or executing policies for restricting who can be in the cage post-fight.
