UFC fighters Jake Shields and Georges St-Pierre

Jake Shields and Georges St-Pierre

Fans were treated to the first promo for UFC 129 on Saturday night during the UFC 128 broadcast, featuring challenger Jake Shields and champion Georges St-Pierre.

The promo showcased a list of all of the fighters who Shields has beaten over the last five plus year unbeaten streak, along with showcasing all the title belts he’s collected along the way.

But while the stories about Shields’ wins are great, what about the UFC fans that only know the Cesar Gracie black belt from his lone fight in the Octagon against Martin Kampmann?

Well, according to UFC president Dana White everyone will learn a lot more about Shields and St-Pierre as they are paired off in the latest UFC Primetime series leading to UFC 129 in Toronto.

“Yeah we’re going to do a Primetime on those two,” White confirmed to MMAWeekly.com. “So everything you didn’t know about Georges St-Pierre from the other 7 Primetimes, you’ll learn in this one.”

The other possibility that may happen during the Primetime series are Shields past fights from organizations like Elite XC and Strikeforce. See with the recent purchase of the San Jose based promotion, the UFC now retains their entire catalog of videos as well, which includes some of Shields biggest wins including victories over Dan Henderson, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, and Paul Daley.

St-Pierre and Shields square off on April 30 in Toronto, which would make the latest UFC Primetime series set to debut in mid-April.
