UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and challenger Jake Shields are getting closer and closer to their historic showdown at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
It’s a huge fight, to be sure, just because of St-Pierre and Shields. St-Pierre is 21-2, riding an eight-fight winning streak, and is highly regarded as one of the top two pound-for-pound fighters in the world. Shields isn’t far behind. He’s 26-4-1 on a 15-fight winning streak that dates back to 2005.
UFC 129: St-Pierre vs. Shields is historic for the added fact that it is the UFC’s first stadium event and has sold out a record 55,000 seats, the most every for a mixed martial arts event in North America.
