Jake Shields




-If you had a choice, who would you like to fight? 
I always want to fight the best.  Right now George St. Pierre and Anderson Silva are considered two of the best.  But I have a fight coming up with Martin Kampmann, so he's who I'm focusing on now.
-What is the best part about being an MMA fighter?
Best part, I'm my own boss.  I succeed or fail because of my efforts.  Money is good, though there's not much in the beginning, only if you're doing good.  I meet people from all over the world, good fans!
-What is the toughest part?
The toughest part is all the training.  It takes a lot of mental toughness to get up and go into the gym day after day, no matter how tired you are.  But it's in your training that you win your fights.
-If you weren't an MMA fighter, what would you be? 
I'd probably be coaching.  I was taking kineseology in college.
-What was your favorte subject in school?
PE of course, and I liked history.  I still like reading
-Describe a typical day of training.
I train boxing wrestling & Jiu Jitsu and mix it up.  I also do strength training 3 days a week.  My schedule gets more rigid once I'm in full training for a fight.
