I really want Sheilds to put his money where is mouth is and sign in the UFC. I have no idea what kind of contract he has with Strikeforce, but it's about time for him to get some stability.
shields still has 2 fights left with strikeforce. he's not avoiding signing with UFC. and if he wins the interim belt and then beats Le for the belt (which i think he will), then why not stay in strikeforce and defend his belt in a weightclass that is above the one he's usually fighting in?
