Shields wouldn't be able to hang in the UFC. He may have a good ground game but his wrestling didn't look that good and guys like Fitch and GSP would destroy him in the wrestling and have much much better striking then he does.

I mean GSP would beat him but I think Shields would be fine against Fitch or Koscheck.

Diego would be tough for him.

Honestly this guy beat Yushin Okami.
Fitch or Kos could beat him on the feat and Shields cound't get them down. Did you see those ***** little strikes he threw, that wasn't because of Daley that was because he is a bad striker and he seems scared to get hit.

Agreed! I can't see Sheilds getting past Fitch, Koscheck, or GSP! Those guys have better striking, better wrestling, and better cardio then Sheilds!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Jake Shields

Do you really think he's top 5 WW in the world ? Seriously, i understand they want to promote EliteXC but he would get murdered by ALOT of welterweights..

Jake shields would not even asked to fight on a undercard for the UFC,, he is a sub par fighter, he had the dude mounted for a total of 5 minutes, and he managed that lame ass slow set up arm bar,,, let him get in the ring with someone like BJ Penn,, or Alves,, or anyone of that caliber,, he would get killed,, all of those lame as Gracie fighters from stockton, Diaz boys, shields,, all of them have ZERO stand up,, and they are fighting crap fighters,, wait till Nate Diaz fights someone like Kenny Florian or such,, he would get killed,,

You guys are crazy. Jake Shields is a stud.

Not sure if he's quite top 5, but he may be... Easily top 10!!!

Paul Daley was a really tough opponent.

Shields is good but after watching that I'm 100% confident he isn't top 5 and he might not be top 10. That was not impressive. Daley didn't look that tough, he was good on his feet but he was laughably bad on the ground. When Shields took him down he fell into the mount, he didn't have to do anything to get mount. It shouldn't be that easy.

The armbar set up was agonizingly slow, considering how helpless Daley was on the ground it shouldn't have taken him nearly that long to finish him.

thiago alves, hughs, Fitch (would dominate him IMO), diego sanchez, Karo Parisyan, carlos conduit, and koscheck are all better fighters than Sheilds. just having jujitsu isn't enough.

not to mention his cardio didn't look good at all so he better hope that he can sub anyone he fights cause if it goes any kind of distance and stays standing he's done.

In all honestly I see him losing to Marcus Davis as well, tho I would still rank sheilds higher.
