A lot of people fail to realize or refuse to acknowledge that Jake Shields has one of the best grounds games in the world of mma. I cant really think of many people that are even in his league when it comes to having such a great combination of wrestling and top level bjj. There are great wrestlers like Hendo, Randy, Kosheck and there are great bjj guys like Filho, Maia, and Jacare, but there are very few who are as good at both wrestling and bjj like Shields. If Shields could ever manage to evolve his stand up he would have a good chance at being the best fighter on the planet. As of right now though, his stand up is akward at best. Anyway, I think Hendo will be in a world of trouble if Shields is able to get this fight into the later rounds.
