I wouldnt say Shields has a badnwagon. I think of someone that has a bandwagon as being like Jon Jones or Dan Hardy, guys that seem to have talent but havent beaten anyone of real consequence. Shields has one of the more impressive records in the sport outside of the UFC. Condit, Lawler, Okami, Daley, Miller, Thomson, Imada, Sakurai, soon to add Hendo! I am a proud Jake Shields nutthugger.
Where have you been all my life?
lol, I've been preaching Jake Shields on this forum for a couple of years now.
And every fight I'm the only fan around.
Everyone said....Daley would beat him, Lawler would beat him....hell I had a few guys telling me that Nick Thompson would KO him.
But the thing is, his hybrid wrestling and Gracie BJJ is just too much for alot of fighters to handle and he knows how to finish fighters, he's always the underdog, and he's fought tough competition his whole carreer.
He's a vet and Hendo isn't going to walk through him in any sense of the phrase.
