TOKYO - Quite simply, Jake Shields did not enjoy his 2011.
The former Strikeforce champ made his way to the UFC, but he ultimately
fell short against UFC titleholder Georges St-Pierre. It went from bad
to worse when his father and mentor, Jack, passed away just weeks before
Shields suffered a knockout loss to Jake Ellenberger.
No regrets, says Shields. This weekend's UFC 144 event provides him an
opportunity to move on, and he's primed to seize the moment.
