Jake Shields found the biggest win of his career overshadowed by an altercation with Jason “Mayhem” Miller after the bout.
After Shields defeated Dan Henderson via unanimous decision, Miller entered the cage to ask Shields for a rematch. Miller was pushed by Shields and Gilbert Melendez, and ended up going to the floor in a heap with Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz and his brother, Nate Diaz. The CBS broadcast quickly cut to a commercial, and it remains to be seen if the incident will affect the promotion’s future on CBS.
“I really apologize for that,” said Shields . “That’s out of my character. He got me when my emotions were running high. He came up in my face, came up talking crap. Unfortunately I pushed him. I overreacted.”
