looks like GSP is helping push Jake over to the UFC

Quoteworthy:

"[Jake Shields is] a great submission fighter. He's got great technique and takedowns. He's very good at not getting hit standing up, he's a perfect mixed martial artist and he's going to have a long career. He's a very smart guy and I have a lot of respect for this guy. I love watching his fights.... As a matter of fact, there's only a few guys I like to watch in mixed martial arts, to learn, and he's one of them. I like to watch Jake Shields, Anderson Silva, Mauricio Shogun, Lyoto Machida. I like to watch also Fedor and Sakuraba back in the day, the Gracies, but there are few other guys that I like watching for my own personal learning....Shields is amazing. He's of course the guy to beat right now. He's fighting at 185 lbs right now, and he's dominating and beating everyone at 185, and he's (a natural) 170 lbs fighter. He's not only an amazing fighter, he's an amazing jiu-jitsu fighter.... As a proud champion, I want to fight the best and Jake Shields is the best right now."

Seems like Jake going over to UFC is almost a guarantee, barring legal issues.

Something tells me Dana is the one telling him to say that. If he lands in the UFC he should get the title shot right away.

This has potential to be the most boring fight in the history of mma
