Jake Shields vs Jason 'Mayhem' Miller to determine Strikeforce interim middleweight champion


Former Elite XC welterweight champion Jake Shields and former ICON Sport middleweight champion Jason "Mayhem" Miller will battle it out for the interim Strikeforce middleweight title sometime soon.

No firm date or location is known at this time. Miller made the announcement in a recent forum post over at MyFightTeam.com.

Here's the snip:

"I'm set to take on Jake Shields for the middleweight championship of the world in Strikeforce."

It's expected that the winner of the 185-pound contest between Shields and Miller will challenge reigning Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Cung Le later this year to unify the belts.

Le is currently tied up with several Hollywood-related projects outside the cage that have kept him out of action for more than one year. He expects to return to competition by the end of 2009 or early 2010.

More on this breaking news in a bit.
