It’s no secret that AJ Agazarm always causes quite the fuss when he’s attached to something. One major event that falls into this category was the Slappening of Polaris 3 where Shields and Agazarm exchanged unparalleled levels of animosity and unsportsmanlike behavior toward each other. As the commentator announced:
“You’ve wanted bad blood, and now you’ve got it…”
the two tore into each other.
Of course Shields was in Garry Tonon’s corner recently when he squared off against AJ in a gi.
And Jake Shields explains just why there’s so much bad blood between the two:
“He always starts mouthin’ off to me, like F*ck you… when he sees me. I think he’s used to being around jiu jitsu guys and he forgets that I actually fight so I gave him a leg kick checked him real quick but then Seth ran over and I was going to be bass so I said I apologized and said that they were for later.”
When prompted more about the leg kick he explained:
“After the match I went up to him to shake his hand even though I don’t like him and I was like hey it was a good match and he’s like f*ck you motherf**ckers. I started to walk off but he kept talking shit so I give a little small leg kick, nothing big.”
Shields elaborated: “It was pretty minor”
