“I want to go out there and fight the best. I’m really looking at UFC over Elite because that is where a lot of top guys are. In the next few weeks I’ll probably make my decision on where I’m going to be signing…. Have [talked to the UFC] in the past. I’m sure we’re going to talk to them in the next week before we sign anything with Elite. I’m ready to get in there with the top guys. With the Rumble on the Rock tournament and EliteXC and my last four or five fights have been top come and have been fast, easy fights. I think it definitely shows I belong there.”
He holds wins over Okami, WEC champ Condit, Jon Fitch, Dave Menne, Verissimo, and others I think he would be a great addition to an already stacked division esp. if Diego Sanchez moves down to LW I think Jake would make a great fill in for him in dicussions of who should fight for the belt next. I guess time will tell if he comes over or not.
