Good fight that Shields takes relatively easily.

Easily only if Shields dry humps Miller for five rounds like he used to do to everyone in Shooto and during the ROTR tournament.

I like the idea of this fight...is the Jacare/mayhem 3 fight still going down? I'm interested in that fight as well...

Totally agree, their middleweight division is strong, Mousasi might have to drop down...

No reason for that, SF needs a guy like Gegard in their LHW div, they have nobody else than Babalu worth much in that division right now. Besides their are a ton of good fights that are in SFs MW Div. Whoever wins the Interim has at least 3 fighters to defend against. Basically all the MWs except for Shamrock could be seen as deserving of the first crack at the Interim Champ.

yeah no reason for Mousasi to drop...they need to use him as a lightning rod to start attracting some guys that want to make a name for themselves a knock him off...thats the only hope for that division.

that's not bad. I like that fight. I also like Jacare there. Jake can fight that guy too and that would be a very interesting ground game for like the 1,000 fans of ground fighting. haha. I would be intrigued at least.

Good fight. No way its going to be an easy fight for Jake, if Jacare couldnt sub Mayhem after having him in dominant positions for so much of the fight I doubt Shields can. Mayhem is probably the better striker, but I think the safe money would be Shields with a LnP UD.
