"I'm feeling great about my opponent. [Akiyama] is someone that I should match up good against. I just wanna have a great year.

"2011 wasn't my best year and I just wanna get back on track and get a couple of big wins to get myself lined back up for another title shot. I would like to be the number one contender by the end of 2012.

"Right now I wanna see Nick [Diaz} go out there and take that belt and then I'll worry about what I'm gonna do from there."

Akimaya better come in wearing goggles or he'll be blind after the first round.

 Shields will wreck Akiyama, why is he fighting Akiyama instead of Kos or another established top tier WW?  Also I would like to see Dana match him up with Nick Diaz, I know they say they won't fight each other but that is a very unprofessional position taken by a lot of fighters and gyms.  This would be the perfect place to put an end to that crap.  Shields should be fighting at 185 anyhow to be perfectly honest, it's where I wanted to see him in the UFC from the beginning.  He has MUCH better matchups at MW than he does at WW which is absolutely stacked with stud wrestlers.

Is this some kind of joke? Shields will never be the #1 contender at WW. With fighters like Diaz, Condit, GSP, Kos, Rumble, Rory, Ellenberger, Story, Fitch, etc, I don't see him in the top 5, maybe not even top 10. He needs to jump to MW.

Basically means he wants some easy fights so he looks good enough to be considered #1 contender.

Shields has always been a bit overated in my book. Akiyama should be able to take him out easily. Especially since he's fighting in Japan. Phone Post

I wouldn't be surprised if he beats Akiyama, but he's in the big leagues now and I don't expect to see him near the belt any time soon. You can only win for so long with standup as bad as his.

Shields is considered far and away the most dangerous fighter at 170 by most optometrists.

For all of the hate that Jake gets, he still always seems to pull through and come out on top. I think that he seems to do his best when he is the underdog... With the amount of hate he's getting now that he has a couple of losses, I bet he'll work his ass off and come back strong.

I love the Diaz VS Condit fight, and I expect that we'll see a lot of excitement in the WW division in 2012. Can't wait!
