According to FiveOuncesOfPain, the much anticipated EliteXC title fight between Jake Shields and Drew Fickett at the co-promoted Strikeforce-EliteXC has been cancelled, due to a back injury Shields suffered while training for the fight.

According to Shields, his son pulled a muscle in his back while training last week. He flew to Los Angeles in order to meet with a specialist. While he had experienced some improvement with the injury, it was determined that he would not be ready in time for Saturday’s fight. A decision was then made to postpone the bout.

A re-scheduled date for the bout has not been set, but Shields indicated that the title fight could take place within the next couple of months.
