Jake Shields to the UFC!

Posted 07-01-2010 at 06:33 PM by HitOrGetHit
MMA star and former Strikeforce middleweight champion Jake Shields' contract has ended with Strikeforce and he will most likely end up fighting for the UFC. Although many thought that Shields would drop back down to welterweight when he makes it to the UFC, there are reports of Shields stating that he wants to fight at middleweight, and wants a crack at middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva. With Shields at middleweight, this could set up fans to see a fantastic fight between Cesar Gracie black belt Jake Shields, and brazilian jiu jitsu champion Demian Maia. He would also have potential bouts with Vitor Belfort, Nate Marquardt, Chael Sonnen, Wanderlei Silva and many more.

Shields' Strikeforce title was vacated after his contract ran out after beating MMA legend Dan Henderson. After Shield's impressive control in the Henderson fight, it eliminates doubts that Shields would have major problems with bigger middleweight fighters. Shields coming to the UFC is a great thing for both the organization itself, and the fans that watch the sport.

If Shields fails in the UFC's middleweight division, he would not be completely stuck. He has shown before in the past that he can make the welterweight weight limit and that he can perform at that weight. Should Shields ever return to welterweight, a fight between Shields and St. Pierre that has been talked about for some time now, could potentially come together.

There is an endless list of positives that come with Jake Shields coming to the UFC. He will undoubtedly shake up any division that he is in, and he will have plenty of outstanding match up's that will please the fans of this sport.
