jake shields

Elite submission fighter Jake Shields has always put it out their that he wants to fight the top fighters in the world. If he secures a win over his next opponent Dan Henderson on April 17th, that dream might just come true.

The UFC has been in the market longer and thus has more elite fighters, but StrikeForce has lots of talented fighters and some are top 10 in the world….I’d pick St.-Pierre, because he weighs what I naturally weigh. Either way it’s a tough fight. GSP’s a complete fighter standing and on the ground. But that’s why I want to fight him, that’s the challenge. I want to test my skills and see what happens….I’m focused on winning a fight at a time. Now I’m focused on Dan Henderson for this fight and after that my contract with Strikeforce ends. I’ll talk with Strikeforce and the UFC to find out which one I will work for. [GracieMag]

Shields takes on Dan Henderson at the CBS broadcast Strikeforce “Nashville” event on April 17 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
