Cesar Gracie student Jake Shields has come out and said he’s anti-Jose Canseco, just like everyone else in the universe seems to be:
“I heard he was out there with Cesar, but personally I’m not a big fan of his. 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,” Shields told MMAWeekly Radio.
“I don’t really want to help the guy. I haven’t met the guy yet, but seeing his track record, I don’t really want to have anything to do with him,” said the 31-year-old fighter. “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.”
“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.”
Since I’m hilariously ignorant when it comes to all other sports, I really need to ask you guys to tell me what makes Canseco such an epic cunt as far as everyone is concerned. Was it just the book he wrote throwing his old teammates under the bus and blowing the lid off baseball’s rampant steroid use? Is there a bunch of other stuff out there that really puts his douche factor way above the average sleazy athlete’s?
I’m just curious because everyone treats him kinda like he’s got the AIDS and I just wanna be in the loop so I can do the same. Yeah, we’re all in agreement as far as him in MMA being a total freakshow. But I came to that conclusion for the simple fact that his celebrity is way more important than his experience and skill, which is the same with Herschel Walker. Both dudes are textbook freakshows in MMA. I guess I just don’t use a moral meterstick when it comes to deciding who is or isn’t worthy of participating in the sport. Well, okay … yeah I do. So fill me in on what’s so heinous about Canseco, plz!
