… according to the former Elite XC welterweight champion.

“… he’ll beat the piss out of me? He’s the one that won’t sign the contract. I would sign that fight tonight but he just wants to talk and act tough, but he’s the one that won’t sign. His manager tells us the fight is on, Miller has agreed and then I’m hearing he’s decided he can’t fight in October but would maybe do it in December. He thinks he’s a star now but just like the show I was the only one doing the fighting while he just did the talking. He must think he’s Cung Le now.”

I don't think Miller is the poser that Jake is attempting to make him look like. If anything he probably wants to fight Jacare because of their history.

Mayhems fighting Jacare in october at dream. its funny that shields throws a baby fit about this after he did the same thing to Joe Riggs not that long ago when he turned down a fight with him to fight Robbie Lawler instead.

Nothing is signed for jacare/miller in dream . Joe riggs did turn down jake so he could fight phil because he had a bigger name with less risk of losing . This **** talking isnt anything new of jake . Hes keeping his name relevant while strikeforce figures out an opponent for him . It must be frustrating with cung holding the belt hostage , frank loves to talk but wont fight him , he wont fight nick , whats the point of fighting scott smith , rematch lawler? villasenor? Drawable names runnning dry , miller is the best option . I know coker has talked about making an interim belt .....

Cung should have been stripped of his belt a long time ago IMO.

Wow Jake really talks a lot of ****. I've always liked a bit of trash talk here and there to make things interesting, but it gets really boring when the dude is saying the exact same thing basically every interview about everyone.

I think u may be confused jake turned down riggs so he could have a fight against lawler. Then riggs got mad cuz jake basically sed he wanted to fight the best and riggs isnt the best.

Through his career Miller has usually had the anywhere any time mentality. His "potential" fight with Jacare has a lot to do with it. He is a very legit fighter and Sheilds better want what he is asking for.
