For Jake Shields, a loss to Georges St-Pierre continues to motivate him.
After defeating Demian Maia earlier this week, Shields believes he is on the right path to a rematch with the current UFC welterweight champion. GSP defeated Shields in his Octagon debut via decision.
“I think (defeating Maia) puts me really high,” said Shields, during the post-fight press conference. I already have wins over Carlos Condit, Robbie Lawler…..I want another shot at GSP.”
Shields has won two in a row and is unbeaten in his last four, as one win was changed to a no-contest. He is 29-6-1 overall in his MMA career.
So, with momentum on his side, who does the former Strikeforce champion want next?
“Whether I have to fight Rory MacDonald, Carlos Condit (or) any of the top contenders, I just want to fight people at the top,” he said.
