Jake Shields: I would love to see Gilbert Melendez and Nick Diaz in the UFCPosted on July 7, 2010, 10:18 AM by Anton Gurevich
Ex-Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Jake Shields declared in an interview to BJPenn.com that he would love to see his Cesar Gracie Teammates Gilbert Melendez and Jake Shields in the UFC. Jake Shields reflected on his time at Strikeforce, revealing that Scott Coker's promotion treated him "like sh*t".
Shields' contract with Strikeforce has officially expired last week, as he was released by the promotion and is no longer a Middleweight Champion. The California-native is currently 25-4-1 in his MMA career, riding an incredible 14-fight winning streak.
