With Cung Le missing in action for more than a year to focus on a career in the movies, Jake Shields has been tabbed to fight for an interim championship made in his absence against an opponent yet to be announced.

Strikeforce President Scott Coker recently confirmed the news Monday evening during an interview with TapouT Radio, explaining that the current Strikeforce 185 pound champion is a man of many obligations at the moment.

If Vitor Belfort signs with the UFC, Joey VillaseƱor or Matt Lindland would be my guess.

They should just strip Cung Le of his title......It doesn't look like he is going to be back any time soon so why let the title hang in the limbo......
