Gracie fighter Jake Shields (mmaweekly #6 welterweight) has reached an agreement to fight in an upcoming bodogFIGHT card. Shields will be heading out to Costa Rica on Feb. 11th to join 61 other fighters for a 3 day fighting event. His opponent has not been made public so far. Jake is also scheduled to fight May 5th on Elite Xtreme Combat’s sophomore effort on Showtime.
Not much is known about the bodogFIGHT card that is taking place in Costa Rica simply because bodogFIGHT’s website is the absolute worst website I have ever been on in my life. No exaggeration, I refuse to even post a link because I wouldn’t want to do that to my readers. Trying to find something you are looking for on that site is like get it up for Rosie O’Donnell, it’s not happening. From what I gather from Graciefighter.com, there is a three day tournament type of event being put on by bodogFIGHT in Costa Rica in February. I don’t think it will be aired until quite a bit later, but we will get the results well before then. I will pass along any info I get about Jake’s opponent or the actual event taking place as soon as it’s made available.
