Imagine if the unthinkable happens, and he goes to SF, beats Shields, Mousasi, AND FEDOR. That will be epic.

Lmfao yeah, if by epic you mean, everybody would literally shit bricks all over the place.


Misaki (a SF MW) has already beaten Henderson... I don't see why we're ruling out the higher ranked guys. IMO Manhoef and Jacare would beat Henderson, let alone the respective champions of each division.

Shit, he's fighting Hendo.

I Hate Shields, but the guy is on my team, so let's hope he wins?

What a dilemma.

Also Im shocked if he'll be able to take Hendo down and hold him there. We are basically talking about a tier one LHW guy fighting an average WW guy for MW title. Shields had tons of problems against Miller, so he'll be just a stepping stone for Hendo on his way to another double championship. Can't wait for Hendo vs. GM for the LHW belt already ^^
I thought Jake would do fine at 170 in the ufc. At 185... he's just to small.

but not more then fine! 170 in the UFC is such a strong devision, I guess he won't make it to a titel shot there.

Basing that opinion off of what? Jake Shields would have some of the best ground game in the division and if he fought at 170 he would excel greatly in the UFC.

I wont sit here and say that I think he will beat GSP..but he has the skills to beat a lot of fighters in that division.

Based on overall! I doupt he could beat guys like Alves, Fitch, Kosh not to mention... GSP. He might get close to a titel shot but would probably lose against one of the guys i mentioned in the top contender bout. But he would be a great addition

Even with guys like Daley and Amir he would struggle I guess.

Agree to disagree man. It seems like he wants to fight in the UFC, so maybe we will see soon enough...until then all is speculation and I wont be judging his performance against Hendo as his skills are worse because nobody seemed to do that to BJ Penn when he fought GSP...right? right? Yeah...

LOL @ struggling against Amir though.
