Dog Fighter Blogger Exclusive





How many people would risk their lives for abandoned dogs roaming the streets of Detroit?  For MMA fighter Gordon Shell the answer is simple.  He will.


Gordon has a bad heart.  The doctors tell him he has to stop fighting or he could die.  So after 15 years, on September 15th, Gordon Shell fights his final bout.  But as Gordon pondered his last fight, he knew it had to be more than just winning the battle.  To put his life at risk it had to be for a cause.  And Gordon's cause was abandoned dogs.  Dogs who live on the streets of Detroit and fight every day just to stay alive.  This last fight will be for them...and all of Gordon's proceeds will go to help rescue those dogs.
