I hope he's in the UFC within the next year though.
Doubtfull Shields could cut to 155 / 160. He walks at around 200 when training and 210 when not in full training. The guy is a huge WW. Aoki would come up.
Honestly there isn't really a WW outside of UFC that even remotely matches up with Shields.
If I didn't think it would destroy EXC, I'd love to see Shields / Lawler.
All in all, the four non-UFC match ups for Shields I'd like to see....
Shields / Trigg - it finally happens after Trigg has ducked him for 4 years
Shields / Shamrock - Frank has dissed Jake several times
Shields / Sakurai - Do it all over again
Shields / Mayhem - both fighters have great personalities, and it would certainly make for an entertaining contest.

This poster has been known to place himself, and his foes in a position to be banned. The best way to avoid such incidents would be to avoid stating anything negative about Jake Shields.
