Jake Shields reveals he’s bringing in Chael Sonnen and Ben Askren to help him prepare for St. Pierre


By Michael Pepper

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion, Jake Shields has today revealed that he’s bringing in former UFC middleweight title contender, Chael Sonnen and Bellator stand-out, Ben Askren to help him prepare for Georges St. Pierre at UFC 129 in April.

The UFC welterweight number one contender revealed the news to The Fight Show earlier today who in turn posted it via their Twitter page.

Shields is coming off a less than impressive split decision win over Martin Kampmann late last year on his octagon debut. Prior to that he’d looked good at 185 pounds, dominating the legendary Dan Henderson on route to a five round unanimous decision win.
