Shields To Join UFC?

With the shutdown of ProElite (including EliteXC), there’s plenty of talented fighters that can be had.  One of those fighters in question is Jake Shields; Shields has a dilemma to face: who does he fight for next?  One possibility that lingers is the chance for Shields to fight for the UFC.

Shields told MMANews.com that he wants to ensure that his contract with EliteXC is free and clear nefore he contemplates his next career move; he has been vocal in the past about fighting for the UFC once his EliteXC contract expires, and with the wealth of talent in the welterweight division (Jon Fitch, Josh Koscheck Georges St. Pierre, etc.), the possibility of Shields joining the UFC is a very real possibility. 

Basically, the only hurdle that needs to be hurdled is any court proceedings that will settle Shields’ EliteXC contract situation once and for all.  This is definitely worth watching as Shields would be a good fit in the UFC.  Stay tuned to Octagon Buzz for any further developments on this situation as well as all of your updated MMA news.
