Controversial contender Jake Shields (26-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is planning to lose four pounds for his next UFC fight. He was forced to tone down into 14 pounds to make way for his fight with Martin Kampann on Saturday’s UFC 121.

He’s been in the game for a long time, so I don’t like to use any of that stuff, but the reality is I do know what he did, and I know he won’t make those dumb mistakes next time.”Read the rest of the article »
