ater this week, Jake Shields (20-4-1) will fight Drew Fickett (32-5) for the first-ever EliteXC welterweight title. It's one of three title fights set for Saturday's Strikeforce/EliteXC show at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.

Shields will go for for his 10th straight victory, but the 29-year-old knows he's got an extremely tough test with Fickett.LINK

Fickett by RNC!



God I hope so, but I doubt he can submit Shields.
I do think that he's going to get a surprise decision win over Shields.

Shields is a tough match-up for alot in the WW division.

On the ground hes a beast both with his BJJ and his Wrestling, however i think his takedowns are lacking. Fortunately Almost everyone in this division is a wrestler and will want to take it to the mat... thus doing his work for him.

Fickett will get beat by shields just like Fitch beat Fickett IMO.

When Sheilds fights an opponent that he cant take to the ground, thats when i think he'll get his first loss in quite awhile.
