MMAWeekly Radio returns on Tuesday with UFC Fight Night headliner Jake Shields as well as Evan Dunham and Bellator middleweight Brian ‘The Predator’ Rogers.
It’s been a rough few weeks for Jake Shields after the passing of his father Jack, but the former welterweight title contender decided to honor his father’s memory by staying in his fight with Jake Ellenberger this weekend in New Orleans.
Ellenberger has been calling for a fight with Shields for months, and now the former Strikeforce middleweight champion will grant him his wish.
“For some reason this guy doesn’t like me, so I don’t like him, and I’m going to make him pay,” Shields said.
Also on the show, Evan Dunham discusses his return to action following an injury that forced him out of his last bout.
Bellator’s middleweight tournament kicks off this weekend in Florida and Ohio’s own Brian ‘The Predator’ Rogers comes on MMAWeekly Radio to discuss his first round match-up with Victor O’Donnell.
