should jake shields be signed by the ufc


1985

Recommended Posts

I heard that jake shields is entering free agency after his fight with hendo,should the ufc bring him in to deepen the talent pool in the middle weight division that looks really weak right now. should they bring him to fight silva to prove that he sucks and his fight with hendo proved nothing except that he cant take a punch and dan is really old and didnt train for a five round or even a two round fight.

Henderson was ranked #2 in the world before that fight. Also White has stated that he would like to have Shields in the UFC (MMAJunkie). Shields has great brazilian jiu jitsu, maybe not as good as Maia but he has great takedowns to take down a greco roman olympian. He would be good for GSP because GSP takes the fight where his oppenent is weakest, so not the ground for shields, and if he can get A.Silva down he may ride out a decision. Only one way to find out, get him in the UFC.

Jake has a 60 day clause in his contract. He can not negotiate any deal with any other company prior to these 60 days expiring. These 60 days started Sunday.

 

Strikeforce had the option to sign him to another fight, however the fight proposal had to be put forth well before the Hendo fight. That was not done.

 

From what I have heard Jake is not happy with how he was treated by Scott and Stikeforce overall. IMO you will see Jake sign with the UFC.
