I consider Hendo also a hell lot stronger then Shields and we all know how good Hendos Wrestling abilitys are.
And the competion that Shields fought isn't really imposing to me.
It's a littel bit rough when people say that, but in my opinion he really is a warm up fight.
I put Jake in that league of submission fighters. His grappling a submissions are world class.
In non mma he's outgrappled John Fitch and Diego Sanchez.
In BJJ he outclassed Vinny Maglhaes.
In MMA he hasn't lose in 5 years and his competition has been solid.
Hendo would be his toughest opponent to date though I can see that.
Jake has the tools to beat him though.
