twitter google Shields vs. McKee is off

According to, an announced fight between Jake Shields and Antonio McKee scheduled for October 19 is off:

Despite having resigned from the IFL and having signed with a new organization, Antonio McKee found himself in somewhat of a jam when IFL representatives pointed out that his contract was an exclusive one and that they had no intention of allowing him to fight elsewhere. After legal issues were brought up and the threat of an injunction loomed over McKee’s fight with Shields, it became clear to all parties that this fight would not happen.
