Jake Shields Wants A Fight With Shinya Aoki

In a recent interview Shields stated that after Lawler he wants to fight Aoki. These guys have actually had a bit of a rivalry building in a few interviews over the past year or so.

Coker says that he has extreme capability of bringing over Japanese superstars from DREAM for cross promotion cards with Strikeforce. If so, this would be a fight that alot of people would watch.

Quote:
With the dearth of welterweights current in Strikeforce, former EliteXC champion Jake Shields has decided to look outside the promotion for his next welterweight opponent. The guy Shields would like to fight after his middleweight battle with Robbie Lawler in Japanese star Shinya Aoki.

“Aoki is a guy I’d like to fight, and Strikeforce has mentioned him as a potential opponent,” Shields said.

Originally, Shields was very close to squaring off with former UFC fighter Joe Riggs. That was not a fight Shields wanted to have.

“Personally, I was never really excited about it,” Shields said. “I said I would do it because I’ll fight anyone they want, but the fight doesn’t get me too excited.”

Strikeforce has also talked about another possibility down the line for Shields.

“Strikeforce has brought up the name of Frank Trigg,” Shields said.

Trigg and Shields have had a war of words through various forums that has gone on for a few years. The two have never faced each other, and each fighter has mentioned the other when asked why the fight has not taken place.

I would pay to see Shinya choke out Jake without a doubt. Aoki knows Jake is no feudal lord afterall.

If it involves despotic feudal lords and choking, sign me up. I'd pay to watch either fight.

Yup- Shields called out Aoki and said he had no "warrior spirit" and Shinya responded with asking if Jake was a feudal lord and that only Michael Jackson should be talking like that. Paraphrasing, of course, but that was the gist of it.

I know that Aoki is the ground game stud these days, but I seriously see Jake giving this guy a hard time.

Jake is seriously hated. And it's funny because he's good enough to beat damn near any WW in the game at this point.

Interesting, first time I heard of this.

I personally think Shields would win.
