UFC 129: Jake Shields Hopes for Another Shot at Belt Before Retirement
Bleacher Report's Michael Evans:
Jake Shields clearly wanted to get Georges St-Pierre to the ground at UFC 129 and he tried to do just that for a round or so. Then, at some point, he lost focus and decided to try and trade shots with the champion. It was a horrible idea and Shields never got back into the fight at all.
It was the first loss for Jake Shields in over six years and clearly he was not happy with his performance after the fight.
MMAjunkie.com was there to get his thoughts. Shields told MMAjunkie, "Obviously I'm not happy. I went in there, and I came up short. Georges has great stand-up, and he kept me away. I couldn't get him down. He did a great job of stuffing my shots."
Shields failed to close the distance, get the clinch and take the fight to the ground. He admitted that he was no match for the boxing and overall standup prowess of the champion. "I guess I need to go back, work on my boxing, and get better," Shields admitted.
