Rockybalboa, you do make a fine point, but I think it is quite clear why Shields doesn't go to the UFC. They won't give him as much money as he thinks he deserves and he'll be wrapped up in long term contract and won't be able to fight wherever he wants. Furthermore, he might get "Arloski'd" or "Tito'd" near the end of his contract.
I'd like to see Shields fight Kikuchi again. That would be an awesome fight for him. Eddie Alvarez, Drew Fickett, Robbie Lawler, Mayhem Miller, Denis Kang, Frank Shamrock, Cung Le, Frank Trigg, Misaki, Aoki and Paul Daley are all big fights for him.
