Jake Shields says Johny Hendricks should 'quit crying' about a title shot and fight him

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

If UFC welterweight contender Johny Hendricks is looking for a fight while reigning division champion Georges St. Pierre settles his differences against Nick Diaz, Jake Shields would be more than happy to oblige.

Somebody call the Wahmbulance!

Looks like Jake Shields is trying to get himself back "in the mix." Or, maybe he's just sticking up for his comrades in the 209. Either way, he's tired of listening to top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Johny Hendricks, who's "crying" about not getting a shot at division champion Georges St. Pierre.

Hendricks (14-1) has won five straight bouts in the promotion's stacked 170-pound division, including a thunderous knockout of Martin Kampmann at the UFC 154 pay-per-view (PPV) event last month in Montreal.

While two of those wins have come over former division number one contenders, "Bigg Rigg" is getting passed over in favor of former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz, who is not only coming off a loss to Carlos Condit, but also a drug suspension for marijuana metabolites.

You know, Shields is right. Nick has done more than Hendricks. More pot! Zing!

Shields, who trains with Diaz under Cesar Gracie, did offer to step inside the cage and face him, despite abandoning the 170-pound weight class to return to middleweight, where he previously held gold in Strikeforce. Unfortunately, his last trip up to 185 pounds resulted in a failed drug test, changing his win over Ed Herman to a "No Contest."

Maybe that earns him a shot at Anderson Silva?

How about it Maniacs, is Shields vs. Hendricks a fight that interests you? Or should Hendricks refuse to take the bait and wait for his shot?
