Check out my recap and commentary of the Jake Shields vs. Ryan Ford fight. I also use this opportunity to show off my UFC cards and memorabilia for each fighter.
Jake Shields is from my home town of San Francisco. I was pretty disappointed after his loss against Lombard and after the UFC cut him. Luckily, he landed pretty quickly with the WSOF and put on a submission and grappling clinic against Ryan Ford.
One of the best things about Shields is that he keeps pressing and moving forward. Even against monsters like Ford and Lombard, Shields looks like he has no fear. In the end, it was a rear naked choke submission. Congrats to Jake Shields and I’m hoping for more fights to come.
Thank you Jake for the autographs. I received this a few weeks ago and finally got around to putting up a video. I like Jake as a fighter and ambassador to the sport. He’s been fighting for over 15 years and has always been an underrated and kind of an underdog type fighter. He’s defeated absolute killers like Tyron Woodley, Carlos Condit, Robbie Lawler, Dan Henderson, and Jason Miller.
As I’m writing this, I just found out that the UFC released him. It is truly a sad day in this fan’s eyes. Shields doesn’t have knockout power and flashy moves, but he’s determined, has heart, and will grind you out.
I’m hoping Jake bounces back and comes back in another organization stronger than ever.
Thank you for the autographs!
