Hector mother freakin' Lombard should fight Shields next. Dude is an animal. Judo, gotta love it.
Coincidently Moner, I just watched that fight. It was a sad sight. But Yoshida looks impressive as hell. I'm going to keep my eye on this guy.

Yep, definitely keep an eye on Yoshiyuki Yoshida. That guy is going to be a contender soon, but I can't root for him against Karo. Still, his judo is amazing, as is his sub game. Oh, and he can elbow a fool. Ah yeah, brownpimp88, he's a manly man.

Shields vs Daley would be really fun.

I wouldn't be surprised to see that one. Lombard isn't very well known and he is signed to EliteXC so now I got another fight that I wanna see.

I can't beleive I overlooked that one.

Shields vs Lombard would be interesting.

BTW 2 whoever said Misaki has never fought in the US you may be right but Misaki has signed a contract with Strikeforce so he will be fighting in the US at some point.

Look Shields can make all the claims about wanting top competition he wants. There is only 1 other top ten fighter in the circus known as elite xc, Robbie Lawler.
Eddie Alvarez is a top ten fighter what are you talking about?

And after Japan, he should be top 5 in my opinion. It's also funny how Nick Diaz isn't top 10 or K.J. Noons. EliteXC is less a circus and more a thorn in your side.

Sheilds isn't making "claims" he really wants to fight the best.

He isn't however going to sell his soul to Dana and the Fertitas for less money and a locked up contract. He's definatly smart. Why can't GSP come play? Because his daddy Dana says no?

This circus you speak of respects it's fighters with respectable contracts and a decent payday. How bout that?

Quote:
There are about four guys in the top ten at 185 that aren't in the UFC.
One of the top 10 in the UFC is named Yushin Okami. He got his ass handed to him by EliteXCs Jake Sheilds.

Quote:
You've got Filho who's locked into a WEC contract.
And you want Sheilds to work for the Fertitas? Is there a fighter under Zuffa who isn't locked down?


Quote:
There's Misaki and Akiyama who have never fought in the US and I don't see them coming to Elite XC if they chose to come over.
"bbjd7" ansered you on this. Misaki is signed with Strikeforce so you'll be seeing him in an EliteXC cage soon enough. Add another 10er to the mix.

So not only are your facts wrong here but so is your prediction.

Quote:
The only other guy at 185 is Lindland. Shields is way too small for Lindland.
Sheilds has expressed his willingness to move up in weight. Thus they'd weigh in the same. You just really think Sheilds isn't good don't you?


Quote:
Shields shot himself in the foot when he decided to take the money Elite XC was offering rather than get respect by fighting the best in the UFC. He simply needs to ride out his contract, and then go fight with the big boys
Again you are wrong. In my opinion Jake is better than John Fitch. I know his Jiu-Jitsu is. And his striking is pin point. Ride out his contract? Looks as if the UFC has an issue with their own fighters riding out their contracts......and leaving.

Looks like your circus has it's fighters respect. And that counts more than your ill informed opinions.

Yeah, Jake will fight at either 170 or 185; he doesn't really care, he just wants to fight solid guys.

Okami didn't really get his ass handed to him by Shields. That was a close fight, and many thought Okami won.

It looked as if Sheilds had him standing and on the ground. Yushin had a good TDD I'll give him that, but he wasn't aggressive at all and that was the deciding factor. I don't see how people can think Okami won.

I was bored, so I re-watched Shields vs Okami.

Rd 1.

Okami controlled the clinch game. Jake tries like hell to take Okami down, gets him down but Yushin gets back up. They start trading a little, and Yushin lands a really nice body kick. They both try for a takedown, Jake goes for a leg-lock, Okami gets out and Jake lands some knees.

10-9 Shields, based on actually trying to work. Hardly an asskicking in that round.

Rd 2.

Jake tries to take Okami down and starts kicking air. Nice body kick from Yushin. Jake works like hell for a takedown. Nice takedown defense from Okami. They break up and Shields lands a nice leg-kick and goes for yet another takedown. Jake gets him down, but Okami is trying to get back up. Jake gets Okami's back but Yushin shows excellent defense and actually attempts a kimura. More defending of the takedown from Okami. Okami lands some nice shots to Shields head. I kind of yawn. They stand and trade, nobody lands anything of note. Round over.

10-9 Shields, based on actually trying to, you know, do something.

Rd 3.

Jake goes for a sloppy takedown and Okami sprawls. More shooting, more sprawling. Jake pulls guard. Okami in half-guard, showing great control. Okami unleashes some nice GnP. Jake is doing nothing but defending. Okami is smoking Shields on the ground, which I find funny, since you said Shields had it on the ground. Okami gets his back and Shields gets up. Shields is bleeding. Yushin lands some nice punches standing. Shields' ear is bleeding and the ref stops to check the cut and bloody nose. Shields tries to kick and panics. Nasty body kick from Okami. Shields had him standing, you say?

10-9 Okami, based on basically destroying Jake Shields.

29-28 for Shields using the 10-9 scoring system. Using the Pride system, the winner was easily Yushin Okami. I could see how many thought Okami won, since he made Shields fight his fight and had that huge third round. You are too biased towards Jake Shields.
