    This is a huge step and a great oppertunity for Shane as this guy Krause has been in some real wars with Cowboy Cerrone and J Varner to name a few but Shane is a skilled giant killer and i got a ton of faith in our Canadian MMA star

    although records show a differance in expierance it does not show Shanes great kickboxing history that i feel puts them even and has a fight of the night potential

    Good luck Shane !
