Shields moves on in his post-UFC career…
Former UFC welterweight fighter and Strikeforce middleweight champion Jake Shields has signed to fight with World Series of Fighting. The news was confirmed by WSOF executive Shawn Lampmann this week.
Shields was recently released from the UFC after a loss by decision to Hector Lombard. Shields had a 4-3, with one No Contest record in the Octagon. Shields said in a statement on the signing: "I am very excited to be fighting for the World Series of Fighting. They have one of if not the best welterweight divisions in the world and I look forward to fighting great fighters like Jon Fitch, Rousimar Palhares, Josh Burkman, Gerald Harris and more. I also believe I will now be in an environment where fighters are embraced which will allow my performance at my very best! My first fight for WSOF will be soon so stay tuned. My thanks to the MMA community and fans for all the love and support."
