Dude, I will beat the piss out of Jake Shields, and he knows it. If everyone thinks I’m gonna lose, that’s fine. I’ll prove them wrong when we get in the cage against each other. I do everything better than him, and I’m bigger than him and stronger than him! I don’t understand, people think that because he stomped out some 170-pounders and caught Robbie Lawler in a damn guillotine, that all of a sudden he’s the second coming of Christ. Well guess what, dude? I’m gonna smash him. When I fight him, I’ll smash him.
—Jason “Mayhem” Miller in an entertaining interview with CagePotato.com describing what he’ll do to Jake Shields if they fight
To clear up any questions about Mayhem and Shields being friends and whether that affects Mayhem’s desire to “beat the piss out of him,” it doesn’t. Mayhem will fight his dad.
It’s the fight business, man. I have no problems fighting anyone, even my dad. I’ve done that a million times.
With that out of the way, looks like the ball’s in Strikeforce’s court. Will they book the fight? If so, when? I don’t know, but the clock’s ticking and their next major show still doesn’t have a date.
