Jake Shields Credits Georges St-Pierre, Makes No Excuses for UFC 129 Loss

Following his loss to UFC champion Georges St-Pierre on Saturday night, Jake Shields says that there were a lot of “could have, should have” moments, but gives full credit to St-Pierre for a strong performance at UFC 129.

UFC president Dana White knows that because the fight went to a decision, there will be detractors, primarily, there will be St-Pierre detractors. But he defended his champion, saying that he’s just fighting “the best guys in the world,” like Shields, and they’re not all going to be exciting finishes.
