Former #1 welterweight contender Jake Shields has put in his thoughts on Johny Hendricks' apparent title shot snub, telling him to "quit crying" and that Hendricks should fight Shields next.

If you've been following today's news that Nick Diaz is "probably" receiving the next welterweight title shot against Georges St. Pierre despite losing his last fight AND is still on suspension by the Nevada State AC, you'll find out that Johny Hendricks wasn't exactly pleased about this decision and wants to fight GSP next. He's been talking about this on Twitter for the last several hours, and Jake Shields has chimed in with his own thoughts towards Hendricks as well as a call to fight him.

I would like to see Jake vs Johnny fight. Sounds like Jake is making a proposal to fight. Guess he see's something in Johnny's game that gives him an advantage. I think everyone on the Johnny bandwagon gotta remember who Jake Shields is. If he fights the way he can, he could probally sub Johnny. As Jake has subbed some really good strikers in the past.

He should take the Shields fight so he's not rusty for GSP when they fight. He'll need to be on the very top of his game to even rival GSP so anytime out will only work as a disadvantage to him. Just my humble opinion though.

I feel Jake trying to get a big fight like this, especially after losing to Ellenberger the way he did. However, I don't think Hendricks will risk it. I think with the current politics in MMa he will just wait it out another couple of months.

As much as I respect Jake as a fighter, he must REALLY like getting punched in the face.

I like Shields but he would get owned in this fight. Horrible match up for him.

i think you're onto something. he thinks he's got something to say now that his buddy Diaz gets the shot. sounds to me like the only reason Diaz gets the shot is because GSP asked for it. maybe jake should thank GSP for giving Diaz a shot.

So dominating is eating a H-bomb and being very very close to being finished? Come on playa. He won soundly but don't throw the dominate word


I agree with Shields this is a fight business, shut up and fight. If you want a guaranteed titleshot go to Bellator.

reread what I wrote

although winning 49-46 and completely outworking Hendo for rounds 2-5 is pretty close to dominating

And beat Hendo.

I heard afterwards Hendo was sick but it was still an impressive win and I wouldn't be surprised if Jake pulled out a win against Hendricks in a similar fashion.

Hell yeah it was. I mean Jake has the style to beat Dan with his top game and TD. Dans TDD leaves much to be desired. But he surrvived a H Bomb and won the rest of the fight.

Easy to talk some shit when suspended and planning a move back to MW isn't it Shields?

Precisely. And while I think Hendricks deserves the title shot and find him quite exciting, it's time to move on. If you're really that good, keep winning until the UFC gives you a title shot.

I didn't take it that way at all. Those Gracie boys just have each others back. Regardless if it's Mayhem stealing Jake's spotlight or Hendricks saying Nick doesn't deserve the shot or even KJ Noons Dad for that matter.

Although I think that last one was just Diaz bros being Diaz bros.

Yo Dana and Company, once Shields comes back from his suspension you guys need to set up Hendricks vs Shields. I'd love to see Shields get KTFO.
