From Jake Shields:
“It’s a go now. We finally worked it out a few days ago. It’s a done deal, it’s been agreed upon by both parties as far as I know, and I think it’s set to go. I have a date (and) venue, but they told me to hold that back. Hopefully CBS. I think it’s CBS. There’s a slight possibility of Showtime because they’re still (working it out). I don’t know the rest of the card or any of that yet. But me and Dan’s on, and I’m hoping it’s on CBS.”
A must-see fight for all true MMA fans, expect fireworks!!!
