    Another new champion crowned that Shields beat with ease. (Condit,Lawler,Woodley) and Maia could be next IF he got his shot, but we all know Nick Diaz has earned it. Is Shields goat?

    Nope.

    GSP owns all of Cesar Gracie camp including Jake.

    Were it not for GSP, Jake Shields would have had a pretty good run in the ufc. After that lost there wasn't much to do with him as he could conceivably beat the other ww's in a not so crowd friendly fashion (See Fitch). When Shields was released for being "just another guy" or something in the ww because he wouldn't fight for a title again soon, i was pretty weirded out. I could think of a lot of people who are just "that guy in their division" who probably won't fight for a title. Shields doesn't get the recognition he deserves, but is much better then given credit (like askren). His fights are pretty cool if you're into grappling. Not so much otherwise.

    But he hid under his bed from Lawler and Anderson.

    Take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    I hate watching Jake Sheilds get his hand raised.

    He didn't beat Woodley or Maia with ease. Personally I didn't think he beat Maia at all.

    the easiest and fastest way to rain on your parade is simply to bring up GSP...

    But since Mighty Mouse beat Dodson, and Cruz beat Mighty Mouse, that makes Cruz GOAT.
