UFC 129 from the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada will be held April 30th.
This sold out show is stacked with impressive fighters including the UFC debut of Ben Henderson, a light heavyweight bout between the legendary icon, Randy Couture, and former champion, Lyoto Machida, and a featherweight match-up for the ages between the No. 3 pound-for-pound fighter and current UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, and the technically proficient and very lethal Muay-Thai kick-boxer, Mark Hominick.
In addition to these tremendous fights, the current UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, will defend his title for a sixth time against the Cesar Gracie prodigy and former Strikeforce and Elite XC champion, Jake Shields.
With Las Vegas placing Jake Shields at a near 5-1 underdog, the experts have their doubts that Shields will leave Toronto the new UFC welterweight champion.
As the insurmountable odds stack up against the No. 1 contender, the following are five keys to victory for Jake Shields to secure his place as the new UFC welterweight champion.
Enjoy the fights.
