All Top 10 ranked welterweight Jake Shields has wanted over the past couple of years was to find a stable home in an organization that allowed him to face off against other top 170-pound fighters and one day fight for a title.

Hrmmm, Lets recap.

9 wins in a row...

wins over Condit, Okami, BJ Pens BJJ trainer (Charuto), Sakurai, and a draw with Misaki.

Yeah, I'd say he's earned his rank of 5-8 where he can regularly be found.

And yeah, he beat Condit and Okami the same night. I would def. put him in the ww top 10.
