Unhappy Shields Victory

I agree because Lindland is not the man he used to be and he is getting old!

I think shields will win this one via submission or MD. But this will be a fing boring fight.

Shields can only be hurt with this fight. Lindland isn't a top tier fighter and although he's a bigger guy, if Shields loses...every UFC nuthugger will bitch about how overrated he is. Fing nuthuggers...

Shields should ask Strikeforce to get some foreign badasses to fight...brazilian guys who win world championships or Europeans with kickboxing pedigrees or he should leave for the UFC. The competition isn't there if this guy has to move UP for challengers.

He's already beaten some Japanese fighters, but he said he'd love to fight Aoki at some point, if possible.

Talking Next fight

Well Aoki got knocked out by a guy that Shields has beat in Hayato Sakurai and if his stable mate Diaz were to somehow loose against Riggs than Shields would probably go back to welterweight and basically strip the belt from Riggs!

Unhappy Sakurai

Of course after DREAM 10 I think Sakurai is close to done!

The Miller fight is much more interesting than a fight with Lindland. I'm aware of what fighting a guy like Lindland USED to mean, but those are long gone unfortunately.

Question Size or Age

Is he not a good matchup because of his size or because he's an old man?

don't think so. at dream 8 he WRECKED the guy that many think is the #1 LW. And Marius is no joke, no shame in that loss.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
