The UFC signs Strikeforce Champion Jake Shields

The UFC stole one of the best Strikeforce fighters in Jake Shields. Jake Shields is a top 5 Middleweight fighter in the World but will be moving down to his normal weight at Welterweight in the UFC. In the Welterweight division he still is considered Top 5 and will be in the mix for a chance at GSP possibly after just one fight. Shields holds a MMA record of 25 wins, 4 losses and 1 draw. Shields has won his 14 fights in a row and has beaten the likes of Dan Henderson, Jason MIller, Robbie Lawler, Paul Daley, Carlos Condit, and Yushin Okami.  With Shields joining an already tough welterweight division, it should be interesting to see who his first fight is.
