I really like Jake and respect him as a fighter. I also appreciate grinders like Jake, Fitch and Okami. In fact I even enjoy watching them. I understand that I am in the minority as far as that goes. A precedent has been set with the releases of Fitch and Okami. You either need to be an exciting fan favorite or you better win every fight to stick around no matter where you are ranked. Dana seemed pissed that he took the decision against Woodley, which may play a factor. Sadly Jake would have probably been better off getting knocked out in that fight. If Jake drops this fight to Maia do you guys think he is gone? Phone Post

Jake doesn't do damage though. He doesn't engage. He just controls. But I wouldn't be mad if he got cut, want to see him face askren in bellator. Phone Post 3.0

I'd have cut him already Phone Post 3.0
Out of curiosity, why? His style or his decline or the failed drug test...?

Maybe I just answered my own question. Phone Post
