He told me he is one of the strongest dudes he has ever faced, and would never want to face him in the ring. Jake even throws Diaz bros and Gilbert like childrens on the mat. Its very easy being critic when you are looking through slow motions and you can see fighters mistakes. I only have to say this If you think that you have any chance over a former title holder in ANY discipline you are an idiot.
So how does Shields throwing around Diaz and Gilbert as well as being strong have anything to do with the horrible striking of his that we are talking about? So Shields has good striking because he is strong and out grapples his teammates? Got it!

It's threads like this that confirm that the majority of MMA "fans" are just a bunch of "HURR DURR" tapout wearing retards who in reality need to shut the fuck up and just watch the fuckin fights.

Jake Shields would KTFO any keyboard warrior on Sherdog
This does not confirm we are tapout wearing retards. You are telling me you can't watch Pat Barry and go ok his grappling is shit, ok Roy Nelson needs to work on his cardio or that would also make you a tapout wearing retard. Fans can watch fights and dissect a fighters skills without being I train UFC idiots.

Because the other fighter also has train for years so their technique cancels out lol

It doesnt. It was just a bit of insight on how good his grapling is. As far as his striking goes, dude busted gsp on the feet, who is one of the better strikers in ww. That should say it all. I will say it again its very easy being a critic when watching fights on tv, than actually being in one. I know from first hand. I am an amatuer mma fighter, and while i am working technique on a heavy bag or in sparring i look alright, but when i was in a fight, my techique looked so sloppy i hate to even watch it again. Granted i am nowhere near the same level as shields is, but nervousnes and fighting infront of a huge crowd, definitly has some effect on him, which is why he can look less then perfect. But if he would be fighting an amatuer i assure you it would be a much diiferent story. Lol at anyone here that thinks he has a chance against him on the feet

Phil Davis quote " I am still learning the strikings". Yeah of course, but you have been pro mma for over 5 years.
