Im not satisfied yet, Shields stated. Ive got a ways to go, won the Elite (XC) title that Im very proud of, but I want to be considered the best and I know theres some fighters out there ranked above me and Im not going to be satisfied until I beat them
Quote:

Im willing to fight up a weight, said Shields. Id fight Robbie Lawler, Frank Shamrock, if Elite wants me to do something like that, Id be happy to do that.

Sheilds is an ambitious fighter. He has a bright future in my opinion.

Good for him, I'd like to see him fight Lawler. But he'll probably platue with EliteXC in a year.

BLAHBLAHBLAH What was the point of that statement? honestly who cares. Everyone and definately Jakes Shields KNOWS... if he wants to fight better fighters, go to the UFC. Middleweight and Welterweight divisions are garbage in EXC.

If you make a habit of not taking under consideration idiodic mannerisms than I understand your standpoint and behavior.

Slow people are not stupid so don't beleive it when others say such. I think you are merley special!!!:thumbsup:

No you are not understanding me. The statement I am talking about is Jake Shield's. His statement almost seems to neglect the existence of GSP. Yes I know gsp is not in EXC. Him saying he wants to fight better people because they're higher ranked than him, and him willing to go to 185 to find them. All he has to do is finish his contracted number of fights with EXC on a winning note, then go and sign with the UFC and he will find some better competition.

So... bottom line, whatever jake shields said is pointless because we all know where there is competition for him. And obviously he knows too.

GSP won't fight Shields not the other way around.

I'm sure if Shields could fight GSP he would but GSP is locked into an exclusive contract and Shields can't fight him.

So you know what Shields wants to fight other top guys so he will go to 185 where a lot of the top guys aren't in the UFC.

Sheilds is disgustingly underated. He's currently riding a 10 fight win streak.


He holds a WW title, he defeated the #1 UFC WW contender in a gracie Jiu Jitsu tournament.

He's defeated WEC WW champion Carlos Condit.
He's also defeated UFCs Yushin Okami.

He's more dangerous than alot of people give him credit for. At MW he'd be an interesting fighter.

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. If he beats him, there is no one else. Other than Condit and Shields, the entire top ten are in the UFC. There are about four guys in the top ten at 185 that aren't in the UFC. You've got Filho who's locked into a WEC contract. 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. The only other guy at 185 is Lindland. Shields is way too small for Lindland. 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.

Rockybalboa, you do make a fine point, but I think it is quite clear why Shields doesn't go to the UFC. They won't give him as much money as he thinks he deserves and he'll be wrapped up in long term contract and won't be able to fight wherever he wants. Furthermore, he might get "Arloski'd" or "Tito'd" near the end of his contract.

I'd like to see Shields fight Kikuchi again. That would be an awesome fight for him. Eddie Alvarez, Drew Fickett, Robbie Lawler, Mayhem Miller, Denis Kang, Frank Shamrock, Cung Le, Frank Trigg, Misaki, Aoki and Paul Daley are all big fights for him.

Sadly brownpimp88, Yoshiyuki Yoshida stole Akira Kikuchi's soul and he made Kikuchi retire from MMA after whomping him. I also would dig a third fight between those 2.

Hector mother freakin' Lombard should fight Shields next. Dude is an animal. Judo, gotta love it.
