Jake Sheilds will be taking on Renato “Charuto” Verissimo at the Gracie Fighting Championships in Miami, Florida.
As announced earlier this week, UFC veteran Nick Diaz will be joining Sheilds on the card when he takes on Thomas Denny.
Recently there has been a great deal of talk as to where Nick Diaz would sign for his next fight. It’s now official, Nick Diaz has signed to fight Thomas Denny on the Gracie Fighting Championships card. The event will be held January 20th in Miami, Florida and the show will be offered on pay-per-view.
Cesar Gracie also stated in a previous interview that both Nick Diaz and Jake Sheilds would be returning on the same card so now we can assume that Jake Sheilds is another big name that will be making an appearance on the January 20th card.
