After UFC 161 Win Over Woodley, Shields Wants A Top 5 Guy

“I really was trying to put on an exciting fight.Sometimes I don’t put on the best fights so I wanted to put on a good fight and I felt like he was really defensive which bummed me out a little bit, but I was able to show off my stand up and out strike him a little bit. I do [feel I’m top-10]. I think Tyron was ranked top-10 and I beat guys like Kampmann, Condit not so long ago, Tyron, I’ve beaten a lot of these top guys so I would like to get back in there with Rory MacDonald or [Jake] Ellenberger or any of the top-five.”

Following his decision victory over Tyron Woodley at UFC 161, Jake Shields tells Ariel Helwani, that he is ready to be pushed back in the mix at welterweight.

    • Nate "THE CHEAT" Marquardt (SUCKS) says:

      Blah you do realize you are the biggest pile off shit to ever come to Bjpenn.

      Sheilds makes Fitch look like Aldo.

      Please UFC cut Jake Sheilds

      Only legit win Sheilds has is the Ed Herman fight and he needed PED’s to win

      Even Akiyama kicked his ass

  2. Pass me, my TRT says:

    Shields looked old and out of condition in that fight. Plus he lost that fight and got a gift from the judges.

    Shields is not top 10 material and would get destroyed by anyone in the Top 5.

  3. Jimmy Lumpkin says:

    He beat Condit SEVEN years ago and already lost to Ellenberger. No way does he deserve a top 5 guy for beating Woodley, failing a drug test and beating Sexyama in his last 3 fights.

  4. KIDD433 says:

    I’m sick of seeing this can in the UFC

  5. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    Wow a bit more humility would be in place here! Shields did not win that fight. The decision was ridiculous, Woodley was robbed.

    So mr. Shields, be happy with the undeserved W but STFU about being in any topcontenders spot.
