Jake Shields Will Fight Frank Shamrock "Any Day, Any Weight"

As up-and-coming welterweight Jake Shields (20-4-1) prepares for his March 29 Strikeforce/EliteXC fight with UFC veteran Drew Fickett (31-5), hes already got his eyes set on a more well-known UFC veteran: Frank Shamrock (23-8-1).

Shields was a guest Tuesday on The Lights Out Show on the TAGG Radio Network, a content partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

I would do that tomorrow, Shields said regarding the match-up with Shamrock. In fact, when there was that whole Baroni thing going on, I actually got a phone call asking me if Baroni didnt come through would I be willing to take that fight. It was about four days before the fight, and I said I would take it I was willing to step up on four days notice and fight him.

Shamrock has been quoted previously as being interested in the match-up as well, but only if Shields was willing to move up to 185 lbs. for the fight.

Without even thinking twice, I would fight Shamrock at 185, Shields said. Ill fight him at 200 lbs. Ill fight him any day, any weight.

As for the Fickett match-up, Shields is confident he will earn the victory.

I think hes tough; I just think that Im too much for him, Shields said. Im going to go in there and try to overwhelm him, try to make an example out of him.

Shields and Fickett are scheduled to fight on the main card of the Strikeforce/EliteXC co-promoted card, which takes place March 29 in San Jose, Calif. The event, headlined by Frank Shamrock vs. Cung Le, will air live on Showtime.
Fighting Frank... hmmm....
