This is the first installment in the ongoing story of Shield’s transition to MMA since she announced singing with PFL – late in 2020
“This is my main focus,” Shields tweeted. “June 10th it’s time to step in the cage and put my hard work to the test!”
Brittney Elkin (3-6 1KO) has been competing professionally for 7 years and has been in there with the likes of MMA prospect Kayla Harrison (8-0 3KO)
Elkin, 30-years-old, could be the perfect opponent to welcome Shields to the sport as she has a versatile game and the experience to match.
Shields, a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, plans on competing in the boxing ring in 2021 as well – perhaps against WBO Middleweight Champion Savannah Marshall
