With the Ultimate Fighter season 11 beginning taping recently, more news has risen! Yesterday, January 21, Jake Shields of the fight promotion, Strikeforce, announced he will be on the UFC and spike tv's reality show, the Ultimate Fighter. He will not compete on the show, but rather be an assistant coach for the man that supposedly brought him into MMA, Chuck Liddell. Jake will also use the filming of the show to train with the cast for his upcoming fight against...and this is exciting...DAN HENDERSON! I'm sure by now it is no new news that Dan Henderson, former olympic wrestler, PRIDE champion of Welterweigh and Middleweight, and UFC superstar, has signed with San Jose's own Strikeforce! This fight is rumored to take place April 17th, so keep checking back into MMA Blogg for updates! And don't forget about these upcoming MMA televised events:
