Don't get boring confused with ineffective. Like him or not he'd defeat most of the UFC's welterweights and some of the middleweights.

It's true what you're saying here. Fact is it's on his opponents to avoid Shields' game and make the fight interesting. I'm not a Shields fan by any means, but he's effective.

the guy is effective thats for sure, its just that his style of effective is much more boring than say wandy in his prime. still effective, one is just more exciting, but you absolutely have a valid point.

Frank's got a point. Shields is good, he's just boring - and it has to be a touchy topic at Strikeforce because they need all the good publicity they can get to succeed in the Zuffa shadow.

Jake Shields = THE TRUTH. He did what he had to do to win the title.Look at what Anderson's been doing in his title fights. Jake's gonna sub Hendo with ease!

Could not agree more boring fighter who talks too much. Non- existent stand up game. Only high points of that fight were all courtesy of Miller. Hendo will kill him and is one of the worst possible match ups out there for shields. Was really excited to see this fight might go down.

I'm still laughing about Jake Shields thinking he can beat GSP.

p.s. let's no forget..Miller almost pulled off a sub. attempt on Shields that almost ended the night for Shields..only if he woulda had a few more seconds..that's better than any sub. attemps that Shields tried to do that night..which he ended up lettin go..Miller probably pulled off the better sumb. attempt that night...



So true! Miller was exciting and Shields was boring!
