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.

He'll always be an Italian, and he'll fight as long as his body will let him. But he can't be a middleweight forever - it's just not right, he said. "I'm a fat guy," Sakara told MMAjunkie.com.
