“Cung Le doesn’t want to fight me. That’s why he vacated the title only to come back a month later and fight again. You’ll have to ask Cung why he won’t fight me.”

Newly crowned Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Jake Shields takes at shot at Cung Le during the “Fedor vs. Rogers” post fight press conference on Nov. 7 from the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.

I agree. Cung Le is a good striker but Shields would take him down at will and maul him

Shields almost got choked out. 10 more seconds and it was over. I dont think Cung should be too scared of him

and this is why I hate Jake Shields.

In Jake's mind everyone is afraid of him, but he will never go to the UFC to fight the actual top fighters in his division.

Jake should test himself once his current contract is up and sign with the UFC, Where the WW and MW division would be able to handle his ground game. I mean Cmon, Half the UFC guys wouldnt be that easy to control. Props to Mayhem, But his is STILL not UFC calibur.

Are you and Jake personal friends? Family maybe? You've been loving him up under every Shields related thread that's been created in the last 24 hours.

Jake Shields should be thankful he won the belt last night and shut up. Mayhem nearly had him choked out. Jake employed what is my least favorite strategy in all of sports to win the fight. Hold him on the cage, and do nothing. When I say nothing I mean just enough so the ref doesn't seperate you. Or take Mayhem down and do essentially the same thing. He did next to nothing with the takedowns last night, rarely even attempted to set up a submission, and his punches were weak. Miller looked annoyed more than anything. He was terrified to stand with Mayhem and it was obvious.

I hope someone comes along and blasts this guy into next year, but unfortunately I don't really see anyone in the MW or WW division at Strikeforce that will do it. Maybe Mayhem on another day. I'd love to see Shields fight Josh Koscheck.

Honestly jake wasnt that impressive vs miller. But i would see jake do the same vs cung le, stand for 10 seconds and then shoot for the rest of the fight.

You sound a little bitter my friend Shields put on a clinic dude went from mount to the back more times then I remember and your right about Mayhem almost having him choked out, but almost only counts in horse shoes and hand granades.

I don't think I would call anything I saw in that fight a "clinic". Jake was only out wrestling Mayhem and he was only modeerately successful as Jason's take downs were much more spectacular than Jake's lackluster and repetitive take downs. Shields came in with a game plan and executed it, congratulations on an extremely boring win.

gotta agree.

all i saw shields doing was transitoning.no punishment to miller at all.while i knew sheilds was going to win this fight.i was still rooting for miller.atleast miller actually tried a RNC.instead of just going back and forth with taking the back and mount.totally boring

Jake Shields can talk and say this all he wants..

But we all know for a fact that he wont stand with Cung.

He wouldnt even stand with Mayhem.
