Jake Shields: Being a 'TUF' Coach Was Not a Distraction

Jake Shields just wrapped up being a Team Liddell assistant coach on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, and some have wondered whether being on the show has taken away from some of his training time for his upcoming title defense against Dan Henderson on CBS. However, when MMA Fighting spoke to Shields earlier this week, the middleweight champion said it was more of a blessing because he got to train with some of the best fighters in Las Vegas while working on the show.

Shields also discussed main eventing his first CBS show and much more. Check out the video below.
