Shields by KO...FTW!

He's not used to working with Kru Yod. Any time you work with a new trainer, there's a bit of a learning curve. Jake's standup improves every time out, but he knows what his strength is...and his strength is incredibly difficult to deal with.

Great place for him to train and learn. He is a great competitor and I believe he will continue to kick ass.

Thanks for the video!

Gotta hand it to Shields, he is making the effort to be more adverse in MMA. At the same time, he is trying to become a more exciting fighter by adding this to his stand up. Phone Post

 shileds is stilll a specialists

His striking is slow...he is strong guy but it seems like he doesnt have fast twitch for striking


He is just so good on the ground and has excellent wrestling he just gets the fight where it needs to go.

 Jake is a world class mma fighter but from that video he is only starting the basics of muay thai. Too many people these days are learning the strikes of Muay Thai but not the defense and movement of muay thai. There is so much more there, skill that isnt even considered for good MT. Again its more than a low kick a knee and an elbow.

#2 welterweight in the world. You have to respect Shields. I think it is impressive that he's willing to come and be a 'white belt' all over again.

represents exactly what you want in a martial artist. Humble, ready to learn.

Shields is never going to be a Muay Thai fighter, but he can certainly continue to improve in all areas of his game and mature as a fighter.
