Jake Shields Vs. Tyron Woodley Targeted For June 15 Canada Event, Likely Ufc 161

JAKE SHIELDS VS. TYRON WOODLEY TARGETED FOR JUNE 15 CANADA EVENT, LIKELY UFC 161
BY STEVEN MARROCCO ON FEB 27, 2013 AT 6:55 PM ET

A welterweight matchup between onetime welterweight title challenger Jake Shields (27-6-1 MMA, 2-2 UFC) and Tyron Woodley (11-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is in the works for this summer, sources told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The fight is being targeted for a yet-unnamed event, likely UFC 161, on June 15 in Canada. A host city is not yet finalized.

Woodley recently called out Shields upon signing a new UFC fight contract, which followed his impressive first-round knockout of Jay Hieron in his promotional debut at UFC 156.

The win put the fighter back on track following a fourth-round KO at the hands of UFC vet Nate Marquardt, who claimed the Strikeforce welterweight title at an event this past July for the now-defunct promotion. It was Woodley's first professional loss in 11 outings.

The former Missouri wrestler earned wins over Andre Galvao, Paul Daley and Jordan Mein in his time with Strikeforce.

Shields, a former Strikeforce middleweight champ, makes his return to welterweight after a decision over 185-pound fighter Ed Herman at UFC 150, which was overturned when he tested positive for a banned substance. The Cesar Gracie-trained fighter was suspended six months and fined for the infraction.

Prior to Herman, Shields earned a unanimous decision over Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 144, which put him back on the right track following back-to-back losses to champ Georges St-Pierre and Jake Ellenberger, respectively.

For the latest on UFC 161, stay tuned to the UFC Rumors section of the site.

Im sure most of you saw the majority of Woodley's fights in Strikeforce and hope you aren't giving your "take" based on the one fight in the Ufc..

He wasn't exactly electrifying in Strikeforce..was kind of a lay n pray wrestler..

Shields won't Marquardt Woodley, but Im hoping we can see some of that BJJ from Strikeforce,

Either way good start to what is hopefully a redeeming card for Canada..

This means Rory is probably Co-headlining...

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8

Shields has terrible stand up, there's people on this forum who could probably beat him standing. Woodleys wrestling is good too.

Woodley has never been known for his stand-up..he caught Hieron...

Hieron was cut from the Ufc back in the day for good reason and was brought in as a replacement for Koscheck to save the Ellenberger fight (that got cancelled and re-booked anyways)

If I were a betting man I would take Woodley..Im just saying we shouldn't write off the last Strikeforce prospect that was hyped as the man to beat GSP too quickly here,

Shields is a good wrestler who has looked lackful in his UFC fights, if he comes in on a good cut he will take Woodley down and probably submit him. Shields does have shitty striking.
