After a couple of big wins...
Jake Shields recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Hector Lombard at UFC 171. Shields said during the interview that he is looking toward getting a title shot shortly if he beats Lombard.
"I have to be close to a title fight, having beaten Maia and Tyron Woodley with both those guys being at the top," Shields said. "...But it's hard to say. You also have the Condit fight. I'm just waiting to see how it goes. I'm just hoping to get home with a dominant performance and get myself a title shot."
