Jake Shields has been considered one of the world’s best 170-pound fighters for the last few years. He is perhaps the best welterweight not currently fighting in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Shields, the MMAWeekly No. 7 ranked welterweight in the world, will be fighting for the vacant EliteXC crown against Nick Thompson this Saturday night.

Shields recently joined MMAWeekly Radio to discuss his preparation for his upcoming bout. “Training is going great,” said Shields. “I'm peaking out perfectly. I'm ready to fight. I haven't fought in way too long. Almost nine months. I'm super excited. I think Nick Thompson is a good opponent and I'm excited to be fighting on CBS as well.”

Jake Shields is a beast, but people are underestimating "The Goat". I take Nick via 4th round KO.

This is going to be a great fight. I cant wait. I will go with Shields via UD. Both of these guys are beasts. The Goat has more expierience. And is the champ so Sheilds will have his work cut out for him
