said it before, I'll say it again
Shields is the new Fitch. He'll probably stick around for a while, win boring splits over top contenders.

he's the perfect gatekeeper for the WW champ as it seems fairly constant. He's a solid enough WW to keep around as a test for contenders.

well, he's the new fitch

I agree to a certain extent that Jake shields is boring. I mean he hasn’t got the knock out power of a Hendricks/lawler or the explosive wrestling as a GSP/Woodley. However his all round skill set and smart fight principles and grappling wins him fights. I would give him ranked fighters outside possibly the top 6 and give him another chance of building his way up

Jake is never going to fight for the UFC title again. But he also completely shut down both Woodley and Maia. I'd not cut him. Jake has it in him to be a solid gatekeeper. Now, whether he's happy with that is a different story.
Come on, man. Shields never got even close to a dominating performance against Maia. Big difference between "dominating" and "shutting down" an opponent, very clear depicted in this fight. Shields got himself dominated than reverted to what he does best, shut down opponents with his stall and blanket MO he has more than enough grappling to do so.

Score wise it was his legit win, in his trademark boring fashion. Domination? Huge distortion of reality.

I would keep him around a little while, though.
