Five Ounces of Pain | Jake Shields vs. Drew Fickett Postponed


A planned fight to decide the vacant EliteXC welterweight title between Jake Shields and Drew Fickett that had been scheduled for this Saturday’s combined EliteXC and Strikeforce show has been postponed.

The news originally was broken on the homepage of ProElite.com. FiveOuncesOfPain.com confirmed the story with Shields’ father and manager, Jack Shields.

According to Shields, his son pulled a muscle in his back while training last week. He flew to Los Angeles in order to meet with a specialist. While he had experienced some improvement with the injury, it was determined that he would not be ready in time for Saturday’s fight. A decision was then made to postpone the bout.

A re-scheduled date for the bout has not been set, but Shields indicated that the title fight could take place within the next couple of months.


Saturday’s show is slated to be headlined by Frank Shamrock defending his Strikeforce middleweight title vs. Cung Le. Bouts featuring Gilbert Melendez defending the Strikeforce lightweight title vs. Gabe Lemley and Nick Diaz taking on Jae Suk Lim are also scheduled.
