He looked like a man on a mission and he wouldn't be stopped. He had to leave SF as the SF MW champ

Do you think he will fight at MW or WW. I wouldn't be surprised if Dana would want him at WW, just because GSP is running out of contenders. At MW he doesn't really have much of shot in my opinion. Can you really see him beating Silva, Sonnen, Marquardt, or Belfort. A fight against Maia would make the most sense, since neither know how to throw a punch. I see Shields getting submitted in that fight though.

I hope he stays at Strikeforce. I don't think Dana will approve of the after fight, and he probably won't sign him because of it.

No way he doesn't get knocked out by Marquardt, Silva (or danced around and made to look like a fool), and Belfort. Sonnen out LNPs him anyday. Shields could take Maia down, but why would he want to. He has good BJJ, but he's nowhere close to Maia's level.

I think that was the plan win or lose. And he'd definitely be put in at 170, to set up a potential title fight with GSP - in which GSP would wreck him:

GSP TDD > Shields TD
GSP striking > Shields striking

Needless to say GSP would keep it a stand-up fight and finish Jake easily IMO.

I'd love this fight though, 2 of my fav fighters.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

Shelds submission > GSPs submissions

Shields Takedowns >GSPs TDD

And BTW who the hell has manhandled Dan Henderson like that on the ground? Seriously who?

Even Nog in his prime had a harder time...

Funny.....

Nobody called him 39 and gassed when he beat Palhares, Bisbing and Franklin on that 3 fight win streak of his....

Bottom line is Jake Shields is destroying very solid WW and MWs..

GSP..... just WWs..
