Demian Maia.

Most fighters have some weakness they'll discover over time. My weakness is take-downs. Just doesn't come naturally.

What I've been told is to picture how awkward it is kicking with your left leg at first, and that's how it is with every strike for some that aren't naturally good at striking.


edit: wow I got neg repped for this post. What?!

Never heard it broken down like that before. I cant even imagine being like that. Ive seen people come and go in gyms that can never seem to get the basic's of throwing a jab down. I could never grasp why they couldnt just follow the damn instructions. That must suck really bad. Ive always felt like you should be able to teach a monkey the essential basics of boxing, guess ive never considered it like that. Wow, glad im not that phyically akward.

I can see Shields winning a decision via wrestling and top control, but it's hard to imagine even him subbing Mayhem.

All the "Mayhem Monkeys" will have to fling poo simultaneously at Shields if their hero is going to have any chance to win.

Shields will win by sub or UD.

Miller will make a mistake at some point, and when he does... it's all over!

Check out my latest interview, which features a quick chat with Shields

Until Shields heads to the UFC and fights the likes of GSP, Fitch, Koscheck, Swick, Daley, etc. etc., I don't see him losing in SF.

*bump*

I can't imagine this fight being to exciting unless Millers stand up has improved enough to do some damage to Jake. I don't think Shields will be able to sub Mayhem though, the dudes slippery as hell.

Likely go to a decision, and tough to call which way it will go.

I think Jake's wrestling will be the telling factor though.

Cool Shields Wrestling

Yeah he is a pretty good wrestler and adapting that with jui-jutsu really helped his game!
