Yesterday we ran an interview with Jason "Mayhem" Miller, in which the Bully Beatdown host vowed to "beat the piss out of Jake Shields" and "smash him" when they fight, and claimed that he does "everything better than him." Well, word got back to Shields, and he’s not too happy about it. The former EliteXC welterweight champ, who’s no stranger to telling fighters that it is in fact they who suck, had this to say to GracieFighter in response (tip via TheGarv):
Miller, your shit has just been put out in the street; if you’d like to make an official response, feel free to hit us up on Twitter. Shields also expressed his frustration over the bout’s delay to MMA Weekly, saying "I want to fight now. I don’t want to be wasting time. I’m training for a certain type of fight, and I don’t want it to get pushed back. But I guess it happens, and I’ll deal with it. If Strikeforce offers me another opponent, I’ll definitely take another opponent. I’d like to fight Miller, but I’ll fight someone else. I’d rather fight now.”
Strikeforce still doesn’t have a date, location, or any of the supporting matchups locked down for their Fedor vs. Rogers event. Time to get crackin’, guys.
