Since they are footing the bills, they get to dictate what they want to see and sorry to say, Jake Shields is a highly skilled fighter and a highly boring one. I USED to say the same thing about Machida but he realized you need to take a few risks and come outta your shell to get a major push in any org or a major fanbase.

First off next time u have a issue with a post of mine MAN UP AND SAY SO.. Dont ***** foot around.. Second off my post went way over your head . It wasnt a "elitist" comment u tool. Frank doesnt deserve a shot at any top name. He hasnt done shit since his return and no one should respect him at all for the stunt he pulled in the Renzo fight. At what point in time did I claim Jake was gods gift to mma? Never. Hes far from a boring fighter also. I found his recent submission vic over Robbie humerous. I found Franks undeserving bout with Cung LAME>.

Frank Shamrock like him or not is an exciting fighter, and a fan favourite. He was a pioneer of the crosstraining, skilled grappler and good stand up, goes balls out everytime + cardio.

What do u want him to do now hes past his prime
He gave Baroni a beating, and tried to put up a show against Le and made mistakes. Against Diaz, well... Diaz is younger hungrier and getting better every fight

I dont care what Frank has to say to be honest. Im a fan

Man Hendo would wipe Frank out. I dont know why Frank said he would want to fight him, is he dellusional? And that Renzo fight is what turned me agaist Frank. Up until then I just thought his ego or overego was funny.

Frank so far along from being relevent in mma it is not funny. Let him keep calling people out that he will never get a chance to fight. And I belive braces inhibit mouth-guard usage?

I was far more put off by Franks braces then Jake's performance. That being said, Frank is kind of a douche, but the man has been around the sport about as long as anyone and has a right to share his opinion.

I can appreciate grappling as I do it myself, so I don't mind Jake Shields grappling and controlling his opponent at all. Also, I don't mind tactical fighters like Machida, Hendo, etc. With that said, I love watching fighters who are always looking to finish fights, I'd say most notably in Strikeforce Fedor and Mousasi. The only way to be truly certain of winning the fight in MMA, is stopping your opponent.

There's other fighters who use their grappling skills to run the time out.

Many fans find a lot of grappling dull. We get it.

Frank already beat Hendo in a close door grappling match (or was it just sparring?)
Anyway nowadays Frank is past his prime, and Hendo is as dangerous as ever. Ill give it to Hendo by overpowering Frank if they were to fight again
