Melvin Manhoef Coming to Strikeforce for 'American Dream'

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Saturday's Melvin Manhoef vs. Robbie Lawler middleweight fight just might be the most anticipated bout on the Strikeforce: Miami card because everyone is expecting fireworks from two of the hardest punchers in MMA. Plus, considering the fact that Lawler needs to get back on track after his disappointing loss to Jake Shields in June, and Manhoef is making his Strikeforce debut, it's safe to assume that both men will be trying their best to put on a show.

MMA Fighting spoke to Manhoef on Thursday about coping with the news that his gym, Mike's Gym in the Netherlands, recently burnt down, what he expects from Lawler and why he feels he is about to live the American dream. Check out the video interview below.
