Shields earns tough decision win over Akiyama
Jake Shields’ relentless pressure may have earned him a decision win over Yoshihiro Akiyama.
But the margin by which he did it was highly suspect. After three rounds, judges awarded the welterweight every round of the fight.
The fight took place on the main card of UFC 144, which took place at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. It aired live on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.
