Shields wants rematch with GSP after Maia victory

UFC Fight Night 29 results: Jake Shields wants rematch with Georges St. Pierre after win over Demian Maia

By Geno Mrosko  @cagesideseats on Oct 10 2013, 8:30a 38

Like there's any chance in hell it could happen, right?


Of all the past opponents UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre has ever squared off against inside the Octagon, who is the one you would like to see him rematch most? Now reverse that. Who is the man you would like to see him rematch least?

Is Jake Shields either of those people?

Well, according to Shields, he's feeling pretty good about the state of his career right now and his positioning in the 170-pound division following his split decision victory over Demian Maia in the main event of last night's (Wed., Oct. 9, 2013) UFC Fight Night 29 showcase from Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Fox Sports 1. He's feeling so good, in fact, that he's got his eye on a rematch with St. Pierre.

Comments he made at the post-fight press conference:


"I think (the win over Maia) puts me really high back up. Maia was ranked number four in the world (and was on) a four-fight win streak. I already have wins over Carlos Condit, Robbie Lawler, top contenders. So I want another shot at GSP."

St. Pierre has a date with Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 on Nov. 16 in Las Vegas, Nevada, but beyond that the talk of a superfight against Anderson Silva has cooled considerably thanks to "The Spider's" knockout loss to Chris Weidman earlier this year. That means he'll be available, assuming he retains his welterweight title.

But is Shields next in line?

That's doubtful. So who else is he open to fighting assuming a rematch with the French-Canadian is out of the question?


"Whether I have to fight Rory MacDonald, Carlos Condit, any of the top contenders, I just want to fight people at the top right now."

Fair enough.

To be honest, if he gets a Rory McDonald/Condit type fight and wins he is in line for a shot.....

He lost to GSP, its not like he was robbed and TBH his style of fighting is even more boring than Georges.

Without bias does he deserve it? probably but I would rather see GSP take on Ellenberger or just about anyone else. I know thats not fair but I cant help it.

On a side note its funny Condit is ranked #1 when Shields already beat him and probably would again.

LOL, the top ten in the UFC is full of fighters Jake has beat but he's not there. Thats how strong the bias professional journalists in mma have against Shields.

I totally understand why Okami was cut, Jake took his place as one of the most deserving but least liked fighters in the UFC lol.

He currently has zero legitimate wins over top WWs in his UFC run. So no he doesn't deserve another title shot and he didn't deserve the first one he got either.

He beat Kampmann and Maia and looked lackluster in both. Nobody else he has beat was relevant to the title. He is not deserving of a rematch at all. At least not yet.
