Bleacher Report's Interview With Jake Shields

In the interview, they discuss EliteXC's demise, Strikeforce, Robbie Lawler, and a possible move to the UFC.

Derek Bolender: I want to jump forward to the end of your EliteXC tenure. The news comes out that they were ceasing operations. At that point everything was in limbo. What was that uncertainly like for you, not knowing what organization you were going to fight for or when your next fight would be?

Jake Shields: It sucked definitely not really knowing what was going on. Itís never fun. Thereís nothing you can do about it. I just tried to look at the positive side. I could open my gym.

I concentrated my energy into that. I just took time to get my gym running good. I kept training, kept working on new skills, and now Iím just happy it finally got resolved with Strikeforce and Iím excited to be back in the cage.
Full interview available here.
