    ha! I knew they edited the coverage!! LOL
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    What I am complaining about is that Shields barely even made a token attempt at trying to finish.
    i just opened up the video and skipped to a random place in the fight. it happened to be the part where jake was attempting a twister. i decided to take a screen shot of it.



    a few seconds later he was in side control, attempting a kimura:


    about 15-20 seconds later he was attempting a RNC:


    trying to lock it in:


    and another shot as he begins to lose it:


    as he was trying to set up ANOTHER RNC, miller spun around, ending up on top. then about 2 seconds of a triangle attempt:


    and a leglock attempt shortly after:


    this was all in the same bit of groundwork which occurred over about 2.5 minutes. not separate parts of the fight. i didn't look any further because i got bored.

    i'd also like to add that in his last 10 fights, jake has won 6 by submission. jason has lost 1 fight by submission, which happened in 2002.

    Right, so because Shields had a couple sub attempts in a randomly chosen 2.5 minute period it disproves my point about how the vast majority of the fight contained none?

    i'll look through the rest of the fight later, probably post more photos.

    in my opinion it was a good fight.

    Maybe I've got to watch the fight again, but as I remembered it, Jake was constantly fighting even just to maintain dominant position. Miller has an active top and bottom game, so the few times that Jake managed to even secure a solid position, he was going for subs everywhere he could before Miller slipped out.

    Also, I'm pretty amused that your effort to disprove my assertion that the fight was boring ended with

    as i was looking at that part of the fight, there was one submission attempt coming after another. after i'd seen 5 or so i didn't bother looking anywhere else as i was getting tired of it, and felt that was enough.

    i'm going to watch the whole thing again when i get a minute.
