    Paul Daley
    Carlos Condit
    Demian Maia
    Tyron Woodley
    Martin Kampmann
    And the most importantly,
    Robbie Fucking Lawler...

    Holy fuck. I'm not even a fan, but this is just sad to see him fighting outside the UFC.

    hes like two different fighters....the grappling is super impressive and exciting, but he has the worst footwork of any fighter i have ever seen at his level (ufc, bellator, wsof, onefc, strikeforce, etc)

    I just wonder, is it physically impossible for him to improve his striking?

    how is that like two different fighters? do you expect all fighters at his level to be well-rounded?

    Agree completely minus the Lawler/ Hendo part. That's kinda what you are saying and I disagree

    No shame in that...look at that mother fucker. He's a judo Olympian with dynamite in his hands. Nobody wants to fight Lombard.

    Entered the thread finding no demands. Request denied.

    he is one of the worst strikers out there but you can't deny his ability to negate almost any onslaught on the feet against him.

    Jake singing My Heart will go on while watching his UFC highlights


    You listed Nick Thompson as the #3 guy on Jake Shields resume. Maybe you could use some?

    Top ten WW of all time.

    I love watching him fight. He looks so awkward, yet he dominates high level guys.

    you are pathetic looking for an argument about this. he looks like two different fighters because the demarcation between him standing and him on the ground is so pronounced you trollop

    He won me over when he came back after Hendo almost knocked his head off and he turned it around and dominated. Respect.
