At Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night 24 event UFC 129 headliners Georges St.Pierre and Jake Shields discussed their title fight, with just a little over a month left until they finally meet in the Octagon.

Check out what both had to say for themselves in their interviews with Joe Rogan below.

Jake Shields:

“I’m excited; this is a fight I’ve wanted for years. I’ve been champ of multiple other shows, that’s all great and I’m proud of that, but UFC has always been the show that I wanted to be at. These other titles are great, but my eye has always been on the UFC and Georges St. Pierre, he’s had the belt for the last 3 or 4 years. He’s the guy I’ve wanted to fight and to finally have this opportunity, I couldn’t be more excited. I can’t just wait to go out there and get it on next month.”


“Training is going well and I’ve been working on a lot of different stuff, getting back to my roots – Karate – and I can’t wait to show it the night of the fight.”
