Sam Caplan is reporting that Jake Shields will be part of EliteXC’s next event on November 10th. His opponent has not yet been named but apparently may come out of Xtreme Couture:
After proposed bouts against Frank Trigg and Antonio McKee fell through for an Oct. 20 card promoted by “Brawl for it All” at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned that Jake Shields’ next fight will be for EliteXC on November 10.
According to his trainer, Cesar Gracie, Shields has signed a bout agreement to fight on EliteXC’s next card against an opponent that has yet to be confirmed. However, Gracie did indicate that Shields’ opponent could end up being someone that is already on the EliteXC roster and currently trains out of Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas.
My guess would be Mike Pyle, who is currently under contract with EliteXC and is one of the few welterweights currently training at Xtreme Couture’s Las Vegas location.
