“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.
