MMA Quick Quote: Jake Shields not boarding the Jose Canseco War Wagon

Large_jose_canseco_mma_medium

"I don’t want to knock anything that Cesar and my camp has done, but I don’t really want to have anything to do with Jose ... He’s not someone I want in my life. I don’t want to help a guy out who has constantly screwed everyone over who has been close to him. I like Hershel Walker and I’d like to see Hershel kick his (expletive), but if he was fighting under my team that would make me feel a little weird, so I don’t know how I feel about that. Being a friend and fan of Hershel and having a guy that I think is kind of a scumbag coming to my gym ... I guess that’s Cesar’s decision. I don’t want to knock his decision, but I certainly wouldn’t let him come into my gym."

Strikeforce Middleweight Champion and one of Cesar Gracie's most accomplished students, Jake Shields, tells MMAWeekly that he doesn't approve of his mentor's decision to allow the steroid stool-pigeon into their gym to learn mixed martial arts for what seems like a means to a quick Jose payday. Canseco has been lobbying hard for a Herschel Walker fight despite Scott Coker promising that Strikeforce wasn't in the Jose Canseco business -- but is there a market for him somewhere else?
