BloodyElbow.com Exclusive: Jake Shields Talks Fighting, Does Real Fighter Magazine Photo Shoot

Jake_shields_medium

They say the life of a MMA fighter isn't all glitz and glamour, but this part of the life certainly is. In this exclusive video provided to BloodyElbow.com, you get behind the scenes coverage of Jake Shields as he does a photo shoot for the new issue of Real Fighter magazine. And speaking of that issue, here is what this month's magazine covers: Jakecover_1__medium

  • In the cover story, Jake Shields talks about the arc of his career, his future, and why he thinks he should be considered a Top 3 welterweight.
  • Real Fighter presents a roundtable of MMA managers. Four of the top suits in the sport, who collectively represent a vast majority of the recognizable names in MMA, discuss the ins and out of their relatively new and volatile profession.
  • In a feature entitled "Environmental Hazards" fighters discuss the subtle dangers of the ring, cage and the canvas. Who knew that the Harley-Davidson logo on the mat might present a greater threat than the opponent?
  • Jacob McClintock (4-0) of Arizona Combat Sports is this issues "Next Big Thing."

    And a lot more.

As I've stated before, I cannot recommend Real Fighter enough. With respect to the competitors in the MMA magazine industry, Real Fighter is, well, intelligent commentary. I highly encourage everyone to read the magazine and support the best of the best in the industry.
