Finally ran into the bitch Mike Jackson— Jake Shields (@jakeshieldsajj) December 16, 2022

That should’ve ended there, but it didn’t. The two continued to bicker over Twitter, with Shields challenging “The Truth” to another go around, this time at the nearby Xtreme Couture.
The best part is when he’s begging for someone to help him— Jake Shields (@jakeshieldsajj) December 16, 2022
They dragged me off because he was begging for mercy— Jake Shields (@jakeshieldsajj) December 16, 2022
A nazi just did a thing. @jakeshieldsajj is such a vile thug.— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) December 16, 2022
Lol! Yet you are the one left bleeding. All of that white fragility got the best of you, nazi. https://t.co/jVn5icPHQM— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) December 16, 2022
I appreciate this thug for documenting his white fragility. Best way to hurt a nazi, hit those pockets. https://t.co/qwxaV3qPlB— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) December 16, 2022
You mean "XC", bozo? The white nationalism fucked your brain up. https://t.co/jqozZSd3WY— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) December 16, 2022
I bet you are at XC and not the PI. You were banned because you couldn't control the white fragility running through your nazi veins. You're nothing but a vile thug, yakub. https://t.co/dIgBPqHa7L— Mike Jackson, Esq. (@TheTruthJackson) December 16, 2022
Per MMA Fighting, the rift between the two has been going on for a while now, concerning various hotly-debated issues like race and politics. Both men have been outspoken about their respective beliefs on Twitter.
MMA Fighting also reports that both men are taking legal action against each other. It is not clear what Jackson’s charges against Shields are, but Shields is allegedly filing a defamation lawsuit.
The 43-year-old Shields (33-11-1, 1 NC) last fought in 2018 at PFL 10 against Ray Cooper III, and lost via first-round TKO. The 37-year-old Jackson (1-2, 1 NC), who is known for welcoming CM Punk into the UFC and MMA last fought at UFC Vegas 62 in October against Pete Rodriguez and lost via first-round knockout.
