Tim Sylvia and Jake Shields join Damon & Jeff live tonight at 6pm PT / 9pm ET on MMAWeeklyRadio.com.
Current UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia, having defeated Jeff Monson in his latest defense of the belt, finally received confirmation of an opponent for his next defense, which will take place March 3rd on the UFC’s Ohio debut. As many people were, Sylvia was a little surprised to learn who his opponent will be, Randy “The Natural” Couture. ““Am I surprised? Absolutely, fully surprised,” said Sylvia. But he was also indignant saying “…he wants to take my belt from me and that is something that I will not allow.”
Rumble on the Rock Grand Prix titleholder Jake Shields hasn’t fought since September of last year… something he’s not very happy about. He has twice been scheduled to fight, originally for the upstart World Fighter organization and then for this week’s Gracie Fighting Championships, both of which have been either cancelled or postponed.
Both Sylvia and Shields, ranked in the MMAWeekly.com Top Ten, join Damon & Jeff tonight to talk about what their respective futures hold. Join them live tonight at 6pm PT / 9pm ET on MMAWeeklyRadio.com.
