Jake Shields: "It's just a minor setback. I'll be taking that title soon."

EliteXC welterweight contender Jake Shields talks about the back injury he suffered that forced him to withdraw from his title fight with Drew Fickett. Check out what he had to say about the timetable for his return and his strong desire to still face Fickett for the title.

"I don’t think it’s anything too serious. I slipped out my back last week in training. It was pretty bad at first. I couldn’t get out of bed for a couple of days and I’ve been rehabbing it and going to the doctor and chiropractor and everything and I was making great improvements. I just don’t think it was quite fast enough. A part of me still definitely wanted to fight, but we discussed it with my manager and they pulled me out this morning."

Here's the full interview...
