Jake Shields Wants To Fight At Affliction Against Matt Lindland

Quote:
Rumors are swirling that Jake Shields, the EliteXC Welterweight Champion, will fill in for injured Vitor Belfort and face Matt Lindland at Affliction "Day of Reckoning". Shields usually fights at 170 lbs, but a potential match-up with Lindland would be at 185 lbs. Earlier this week Shields told MMAWeekly he was in negotiations to fight at 185 lbs for an organization other than EliteXC. This would fit into the time line perfectly, because Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio claims he was notified of Belfort's injury on Tuesday.

I really want to see this one. Who would not want to see Jake Shields VS Matt Lindland?

I love the cross promotion capabilities of these smaller orgs. This fight is worth the PPV cost alone.

Hopefully this one happens.

What crap luck for Vitor. Well, guess we'll see what Shields has for Matt.

Jake has earned his hype. He's an easy top tier WW.

I'm an MMA fan. I like EliteXC as much as I like UFC.

Jake Shields really seems to want to prove himself.

I'd love to see this, I actually would rather see this than the Belfort fight.

I want to see this one way more than the Belfort fight. And if he wins I can still hear people saying that the vicory does nothing for his rankings because it was a catch weight or middleweight bout.

Same thing they did when Shields beat Yushin Okami.

I think Shields would beat Lindland. I too like the cross-promotion, it makes for some sweet fights.

I wouldn't mind seeing jake shields vs GSP. I like Jake's game but GSP would probably wipe the floor with him. I'd still like to see this fight though.

I highly doubt that Elite XC is going to let Shields compete for Affliction. He's one of their top stars. Why would they let him help their competition for the #2 slot in mma? Beyond that it's a bad fight for Shields. Lindland's size, strength, and wrestling ability will be too much for Shields.

This reminds me of a discussion that we had last week. Looks like either mine or your argument may be validated.
