    Jake Shields agrees to face Matt Lindland Aug. 15



    by Jason Benfari on June 28, 2009

    Consensus top-5 welterweight Jake Shields is arguably the best fighter this side of Fedor Emelianenko currently competing outside of the UFC. The brilliant "American" jiu-jitsu fighter is considered among the very best welterweights in the world, but has had trouble finding quality opponents outside of the UFC at the weight. Beside his good friend and teammate Nick Diaz, and "Mach" Sakurai, who Shields has already defeated, every other top 10 welterweight currently competes in the UFC.

    This has lead the talented Shields to seek challenges elsewhere. To that end, Shields moved up in weight to face top-5 middleweight Robbie Lawler at Strikeforce: "Lawler vs. Shields". Shields took the fight easily, deftly applying a guillotine choke that finished Lawler in the very first round.

    Not content to rest on that victory, FiveKnuckles.com can confirm, through sources close to the fighter, that he has agreed to face Matt Lindland at Strikeforce: "Carano vs. Santos" on Aug. 15. Lindland (21-6) is currently contemplating the match up, and if he takes the fight, bout agreements will be dispersed shortly.

    If Lindland declines, however, sources close to Shields, who couldn't reveal a name, say an even bigger match up is waiting in the wings.

    really? i can see lindland using his wrestling to keep it standing and box it out

    he doesn't have the best striking, but it's fairly crisp against somebody like shields
    word


    i wonder who the "bigger name" is though

    It's either going to be a drawn out decision for Lindland with hardly any action or Shields is going to submit him in the first.

    :ugh::ugh::ugh:

    Seriously? She's only going to fuck about five black guys when you let her back into her life.

    Lindland is a big dude, I'm not so sure Shields will be able to have his way with him like he does with everyone he fights in his own weight class.

    I'm pulling for Shields, but i can see the fight going either way.

    i really have little to no interest in this fight if it happens. Was never a fan of either of them.
