"Fight Life" Trailer Featuring Jake Shields ReleasedJust in time for his Strikeforce Middleweight Championship title defence this Saturday on primetime CBS television, Strikeforce star Jake Shields is featured in a new trailer for the highly-anticipated “Fight Life” mixed martial arts documentary. The trailer, directed by award-winning filmmaker James Z. Feng, was released last night.

Shields is one of many fighters whose life and career is documented in “Fight Life,” as the crew examines a side of the fighters’ lives that is not often shown to the public. The documentary will be released later this year.

Following the careers of some of MMA’s top fighters both inside the cage and out, “Fight Life” focuses on the struggles that are faced as they rise up the ranks of the sport and the challenges that life presents to them along the way. In the case of Shields, the wrestling standout and multi-promotion champion entered mixed martial arts alongside future UFC champ Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell.

After dropping out of college to pursue fighting on a full-time basis, Shields later joined up with a tight-knit group that includes fellow Strikeforce titleholders Gilbert “El Niño” Melendez and Nick Diaz, along with UFC contender Nate Diaz. “Fight Life” addresses the obstacles that Shields has had to overcome along the way to becoming one of the top mixed martial artists in the world today.
