As he prepares for his UFC 129 main-event fight with Georges St. Pierre, former EliteXC welterweight champion and former Strikeforce middleweight champion Jake Shields will spend some time training with Chael Sonnen. Jake Shields comments on Spike TV:


"So far things are going great, camp's going good. We just had Court Mcgee out here ... you've got Chael Sonnen coming out this week, things are going good. I'm pushing, in great shape. I'm just excited, I'm ready to go."

Hopefully Jake doesn't learn how to take steroids from Chael and just trains in fighting

Maybe Hardy should train with Chael to better his wrestling.

maybe shields should worry more about GSPs jab and stand up cause I'm pretty sure GSP won't take this fight to the ground

Agreed. This fight's gonna look a lot like Kos/GSP II, I think.

BJ needs to train with Chael to prepare him for the Fitch rematch.

I assumed he would be training with him on how to trash talk and have a personality.

Then what are you getting at?

I like this, Shields will be grappling with an elite wrestler, and hopefully gets some good trash talk help as well.

exactly. He's not going to beat GSP w/striking but that is where Jake is the weakest so he should be working like mad to improve his stand up. Grappling w/Chael isn't going to hurt him either....unless he gets injured. that would hurt.

I think it's an excellent idea because Chael offers the same strength advantage that St. Pierre offers, but I think he ought to be training against some elite strikers so he can work on surviving GSP's stand-up.
