UFC Fighter Physically Attacked After Nazi Remark

Former UFC fighter Jake Shields does not have the best luck lately as he got into a physical altercation with welterweight fighter Mike Jackson at the UFC Performance Institute. Shields posted a video of the incident to Instagram, where he even accused Jackson of trolling him online.



In a future interview with MMA Fighting, the former middleweight title challenger claimed that constant “Nazi” jibes by ‘The Truth’ on Twitter were what led to their fight at UFC PI.

The 43-year-old claimed that such slander might have cost him many business deals. Shields added that he could even sue Jackson if he wanted to:

“I know I shouldn’t have done that. But the guy had for months just been popping on my Twitter and calling me a Nazi, which is complete defamation… I do business with Jewish people, and so they’re calling me a Nazi, and people that know me know I’m not that way, but what if I didn’t know these people I was working with? I could lose big business deals if he’s sitting there telling people I’m a Nazi and a white supremacist. It’s such a slander. I could sue him for defamation.”
