Just in case you didn’t know this, there’s more than one fight on this weekend’s Strikeforce card. There is also a title fight as middleweight champ Jake Shields (23-4-1) attempts to defend his belt against Bully Beatdown star Jason “Mayhem” Miller (22-6).
Most people are giving Shields the edge on the ground, although, Miller has only been submitted once in his 28-fight pro career, and that was seven years ago. Even if Shields gets him to the ground, it will be very difficult to submit Mayhem. And Mayhem probably has the advantage on the feet.
Because Mayhem let Shields be on his MTV Bully Beatdown “reality” show, he should make Shields agree not to try and take him to the ground. If Mayhem wins, most likely it will come via (T)KO due to strikes or a decision.
