Mayhem Not So Sure About The Jake Shields Fight Anymore

Mayhem Miller

When Mayhem Miller announced he would be fighting Jake Shields for the Strikeforce Interim Middleweight Championship, we kind of figured that meant the fight was basically a done deal. Apparently not.

Now Mayhem is saying he’s not so sure, he hasn’t received a bout agreement yet.

“I had announced on that I was going to fight Jake Shields,” Miller said. “But then they said something was wrong, maybe not.

“I’m not completely sure. I haven’t got a bout agreement yet.”

“I think [a fight with Shields is likely], but like I said, nothing’s finalized,” Miller said. “I would like to fight Shields for the damn strap.”

That’s rather odd. I don’t think Jake Shields would object to the matchmaking, although he did before when Strikeforce tried book him against Joe Riggs. Maybe DREAM is the problem? I don’t know, but I’m curious to find out.
