Jake Shields admits that Jason “Mayhem” Miller is a well-rounded fighter, but he plans to shut Miller’s mouth at the Strikeforce ‘Fedor vs. Rogers’ event. Shields wants to put the drama on the side because he prefers to show it in the cage, stating that he wants to “beat the living crap out of” Miller.
Strikeforce ‘Fedor vs. Rogers’ is scheduled to take place on November 7th at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The bout between Shields and Miller will be for the Strikeforce middleweight title now that Cung Le has stepped down from his throne in order to pursue his acting career.
From Jake Shields:
“I have nothing against Jason (‘Mayhem’ Miller). I think he’s a tough fighter, but I’m gonna go out there and beat the crap of him on the 7th, ya know? Jason likes to talk and I’m gonna go out there and once we’re in the cage, you’ll see what happens. I’ve certainly prepared on my end. When I get through Jason Miller, then we’ll see who they bring at me. Seems like they’re bringing in some big middleweights so there’s lots of possibilities. I feel the best that I have ever felt. I’m going to go out there and try to smash Mayhem. I’ve been working on my stand-up, wrestling and jui jitsu, every aspect. I’m gonna go out there and make a statement and beat the living crap out of him.”
