â€œI think me and Mayhem match up for a nice and exciting fight,â€
â€œI think heâ€™s an extremely talented fighter. Heâ€™s got a little size on me, and heâ€™s extremely well-rounded,â€ added the Cesar Gracie trained combatant. â€œHe can fight from anywhere and he always comes in shape.â€
â€œBeing ground fighters, being on top in MMA is usually an advantage. Wrestling would definitely be an advantage, but I feel Mayhem has a little bit underestimated wrestling … His wrestling is actually pretty good. I think heâ€™s definitely capable of taking me down and I think Iâ€™m definitely capable of standing with him too, so this fight could take place anywhere.â€
â€œI spar with the best fighters in the world no problem, but people want to bash my stand-up … Iâ€™m not going to let (the criticism) force me to play into someone elseâ€™s game to try and prove myself.”
â€œI think my stand-up is way underrated, but Iâ€™m not going to try to prove something to show these idiots that I can stand.â€
â€œMy grappling is my strongest point. I work my stand up all the time. I knockout people all the time in training, but thatâ€™s training … I figure Iâ€™ll save the stand-up for when I need it and work to put it toward the ground and play to my strength. Thereâ€™s no reason for me to try to prove anything to show anyone. Iâ€™ll stand-up when I need it, but the ground is my strength … We trained a couple of times together. It was one of those things where it was nonstop transitioning from one move to the next on the ground … Hopefully weâ€™ll have that kind of fight out there. [MMAWeekly]
As much as I want to see Jake Shields test his stand up and quiet Jason Mayhem Miller, a fast pace technical ground battle between the two, might just be what the Strikeforce “Fedor vs Rogers” main card needs.
