MMA News: Jake Shields vs. Paul Daley at EliteXC on CBS

Jake Shields apparently is set to return to the EliteXC on CBS cars on October 4th.  His first welterweight title defense will be against Paul “Semtex” Daley.  There had been many rumors about Shields’ next fight.  Some have speculated he would fight Matt Lindland at Affliction’s next card and others mentioned possible a bout between Shinya Aoki and him.  This fight seems to be more for marketing purposes as Paul Daley has  a big following in England.  This fight will help give the CBS card credibility.  That card should feature Kimbo Slice and Gina Carano, both of whom are very popualr and very large draws.  However, Shields should help with harcore MMA fans.  This should be an exciting fight which Shields should be heavily favored to win.  This next CBS card is huge for EliteXC seeing as how they are in such financial trouble.  EliteXC is also hoping to add a fight between Nick Diaz and KJ Noons for the lightweight strap, but don’t hold your breath.
