  • Jake Shields confirms that his challenge to face 10 transmen is still on the table
  • The ex-Strikeforce champion said he has only had a fake acceptor so far

Former UFC fighter and Strikeforce champion Jake Shields is determined to show trans women fighters that if they can fight real women, then transmen should be able to fight real men too. Shields said he is willing to use his own money as prize for the 10 transmen who would step up and face him.

Nobody’s being True

Speaking to Inside Fighting, Shields said he wants to take on 10 transmen one by one with no rest in between and he’s paying them $200K from his own money. However, nobody has accepted his challenge yet besides the “fake” one who did recently.

“[It’s] back to back, I’m not gonna get jumped by 10 transdudes but I’m good on that one at a time but no resting, though. Fight one, next one, next one, next one… None of them will accept it so I’ve offered 200k in my own money to try to make it happen, still no acceptors,” Shields said.

“It was a fake acceptor [we] contacted him, they’re like, ‘Oh never mind, I don’t want to fight you I actually want to fight someone else on the same card as you but it’s not as good as you,’” he added. “Trying to use my name to get relevant.”

It’s gonna make Sense

For Shields, his aim is simple: prove to everybody that transwomen should not compete against real women as it will never be a fair match, given they are still born men.

“I was kind of pointing out the hypocrisy of transwomen going to beating up women saying they’re real women,” He explained. “So, if they’re real women then why can’t I?, I’m willing to fight the 10 toughest transmen in the world and I’ll smoke them all and the fact that none of them will accept none of them will step up and fight me kind of proves my point… and then all the trans women want to fight women.”

Shields’ challenge was previously accepted by Mack Beggs, the trans man who made headlines in 2017 after winning the Texas girls’ 110 lb championship despite being classified as male. However, Shields and Beggs have yet to close a deal to this day.
