Jake Shields Wants A Title Shot If He Wins At UFC 171
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.04.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Jake Shields (29-6-1 MMA, 4-2 UFC) said that he wants a welterweight title shot if he can win his UFC 171 fight against Hector Lombard (33-4-1 MMA, 2-2 UFC).

On getting a title shot: "I've gotta be close. I'm on a good win streak right now, and I want to go out there put Hector away and hopefully finish, which isn't an easy task. I would be the first guy to do it and get a title shot."

On fighting Lombard: "I want to take him down, go for a submission, (and work) heavy ground and pound. I think if I can finish him, I can probably get a title shot. So I need to go out there and push as hard as I possibly can. Hector's a guy you can't go in and push too fast; you don't want to go in and start trading with him, because in my mind, he's quite possibly the hardest hitter in the 170-pound division."

On Lombard calling him boring: "Guys will say whatever, like, ‘It's going to be an easy fight,' but when you're fighting someone at the top level, we all know that it's not going to be an easy fight. I don't think Hector's going to be an easy fight. I'd be stupid to say that. I could pretend in this interview and say, ‘Oh, I'm going to walk right through him,' but Hector's a beast, man. I know that, he knows I'm tough, and we've both got to be at the top of our game that night."
