Yeah, but regardless of what everyone thinks, this fight will not happen outside of the UFC. So Shields has to come to the UFC to get his shot. Not saying you were implying that. Just pointing it out.
True, but I think from the way that Shields talks and how desperate the UFC is starting to get for contenders that GSP hasnt already beaten, i feel pretty confident that he will be running to the UFC as soon as his Strikeforce contract is up. Jake Shields is one of those guys that legitimately wants to fight the very best guys in the world. He has fought a ton of the best guys from outside of the UFC and even beaten some good fighters that are currently in the UFC. I think he really does want very badly to fight GSP. I dont think he will be able to beat him, but im sure that he will find a way to fight him before it is all said and done.
