UFC 129 Video: Jake Shields Plans to Shock the World… Again


To those that haven’t followed his career, which has taken place predominately outside the UFC, Jake Shields is an overwhelming underdog in Saturday night’s challenge of UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre. The masses aren’t giving the former Strikeforce middleweight champion much of a chance at UFC 129 in Toronto.

They give little regard to his 15-fight winning streak. It’s a streak that includes victims like Dan Henderson, Robbie Lawler, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, Yushin Okami, Carlos Condit, and Martin Kampmann. It’s a streak that dates back to November 2005. It’s a streak that includes two weight classes.

That’s okay though, Shields has been down this road before. He’s been underrated then over-delivered time and time again. And he plans to do it once more, when he steps in the Octagon with the man considered amongst the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world… to shock the world again.
