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 MyFightTeam.com 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.
