Jake Shields agrees to fight Matt Lindland; Lindland contemplating

Jake Shields, in search for better competition, has agreed to fight another bigger fighter in Matt Lindland. If he beats Lindland (which he should), I think it's time for the UFC.

Im surprised your so eager to put him over Lindland, I doubt Lindlands commitment to fighting now but in his prime Lindland was one of the best MW's around and it wasnt that long ago he was considered a top 2 of 3 MW. I think what Lindland shows up decides who takes this fight.

Lindland is a very dangerous opponent for Shields. Dude is strong as hell.

Lindland wont do well against shields. He is 39 years old and isnt even half of the fighter he used to be. On top of that, he constantly looks like he needs a shower. How can you root for someone who looks like the white version of ashy larry?

Shields by submission, R2.

Even if it's the "good" version of him that shows up, I think he's too over the hill to pose serious challenges.

If not Lindland, Shields told me Jason "Mayhem" Miller is a guy SF is interested in bringing in as well.

The miller fight is way more awesome. Fight someone relovent Jake, any more steps back after lindland and you will end up fighting riggs.

Talking Shields at Middleweight

So does this mean that for the moment Shields is moving to middleweight? I bet that if Diaz somehow looses to Riggs he'll go right back down to welterweight and take that belt off of Riggs after he chokes him unconscious!

I think Shields would defeat Lindland in this. The Miller fight sounds very exciting.
