In case getting a free pass into the UFC Fight Night 25: "Shields vs. Ellenberger" weigh-ins on Sept. 16 wasn't enough, fight fans will also have the opportunity to get into a free concert held by Chevelle shortly after the weigh-ins conclude at 6:30 p.m. in New Orleans, Louisiana. Anyone plan on taking advantage of the free ride?
Despite his father passing away just yesterday, Jake Shields will remain on the UFC Fight Night 25: "Battle on the Bayou" event on Sept. 17, 2011, in New Orleans, Louisiana, according to MMA Fighting. He will headline the show against fellow welterweight contender Jake Ellenberger in a bout filled with divisional relevance.
Jake Shields' father passed away today (August 30th, 2011), just over two weeks away from Jake's scheduled bout against Jake Ellenberger at UFC Fight Night 25 on Sept. 17 in New Orleans. Jack Shields was his son's high school wrestling coach, and also served as his manager. No word on whether or not Shields will pull out of his bout against Ellenberger.
