Strikeforce: Jake Shields vs Dan Henderson Deal Finalized


Dan Henderson and Jake Shields have finally came to an agreement to fight, possibly co-headlining the April CBS Strikeforce card.

Jake Shields:

“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.”

“I really wanted the fight, the fans really wanted it, so I knew it was going to happen,” he commented. “There was a few little things holding it back, but luckily everything’s been worked out and I’m just happy the fight’s happening, and I want to go out there and put on an exciting fight.” [MMAWeekly]

The Shields fight marks the first of four fights on Dan Henderson Strikeforce contract.
