Scott Coker On Jake Shields Appearance As Coach On TUF

<p>Strikeforce President Scott Coker talks to MMAWeekly.com about his middleweight champion Jake Shields making an appearance on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter as a BJJ coach for Chuck Liddells team:</p><p>&quot;Jake is always looking for more exposure, and try to increase his brand as an individual. When I heard about it, it was like when Robbie Lawler was doing The Ultimate Fighter when Matt Hughes was coaching. We see it as no different, and Chuck asked him to be the coach, and where Jake trains it doesn't matter. Just make sure that he's training cause he's going to be fighting Dan Henderson in April&quot;</p><p>It's cool to see Coker open to allowing his fighters to branch out for exposure, as long as they are ready to compete.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
