    What's also impressive is how close Miller was to Subbing Jake. Miller survived against Jacare...he has some seriously underrated BJJ.

    Well, I don't underrate him. That's why he's on my list of impressive victories.


    Also, look at Hendo's run that Shields interrupted....

    Hes comparing the 2.

    Jake Shields is Silva compared to Askren at striking.

    Easy for Shields, Askren isn't on that level.

    Jake Shields was a beast. One of many fighters that looked like world beaters until coming up against GSP. Then they looked ordinary and everyone moaned about GSP fighting cans

    Yeah true. To be fair though, probably would have never happened if it hadnt been for the eye poke. But still, great fighter.

    No, not even close.

    Askren wins.

    Another wasted talent. Miller also had a granite chin. If the guys' personal life wasn't such a mess, he would have been a top fighter at 170.

    I just don't think many people will agree with you.

    Shields is more well-rounded, I think most everyone would agree there. But I'd give the nod to Askren in this matchup.

    I genuinely don't know, Shields was a beast but that was long before he got to the UFC. The best version of both guys are scary good grapplers. It would be a great fight

    This video is soooo old that it's totally irrelevant,not that rolling is super relevant anyway.As for the fight who gives a shit unless it's happening which it isn't.
