    Jake has better wins and more championships.

    Jake also doesn't quit or get suspended after every fight.

    Trained with both for the record

    Jake has had by far the better career.

    Nick is a polarizing figure; Jake is pretty vanilla.

    Jake has had a solid career. I'd argue that his wins exceed those of Nick. There's some really impressive wins on his record.

    Jake Shields 31-8
    Nick Diaz 26-9

    I think Sheilds had the better career by a wide margin.

    Nick imho has more potential. Shield gets popped for roids, diaz gets popped for weed

    So I guess you aren't counting the Gomi fight or the Mayhem fight where he had a chocked locked up on shields where he was about to tap.

    Shields arguably had a better showing against GSP but you could also argue that was because of the eyepoke and regardless GSP clearly won that fight, too.

    Shields easy. Nick diaz is the most overrated guy in mma. His only legit win was a lucky gogo on gomi. The only people who thinks he's good are those guys who thinks that swearing and acting like a complete idiot is badass. They may have the same level of iq as nick diaz

    Jake took a H bomb and still defeated Henderson.

    That win alone puts him above Nick.

    If you look at the records and opponents beaten Shields easily.
    If you watch every fight who is more exciting, diverse, fun to watch, and quality of method of victory its Nick easily
