against him? Personally I feel Paulo Thiago would be good. He's a strong opponent, wont be easy, so I think it would put Shields right where he should be in the division.

If he were to come in at WW, then I say Paulo Thiago. If he he were to come in at MW, I would say Vitor Belfort.

So I picked Kampmann, reason being Fairness.....it's the same guy Condit hd to fight when he showed up to the UFC. Kampmann is still ranked about the same when Condit showed up, he is still really well rounded, he is still in great shape, he is still a great div gatekeeper!

I think he will face Fitch/Alves winner, he's already beaten Daley and Fitch and Alves are considered the top two contenders. I still think that it's very possible that he fights GSP.

Even though Jake is a champion in SF, I hope the UFC brings him along slowly. I voted for Kampman/Swick winner. Jake needs to be tested but not thrown to the wolves. If he can beat FINISH!! either of these guys then put him in #1 contender fight with Alves/Fitch winner!?!? But he needs to show some finishing ability. Why do you think Fitchie hasnt got another title shot!! No finishing power! Flat out. I disagree with it but the UFC appaerntly doesn't!

I would not be surprised if White guarantees Shields an immediate title shot in order to pull him away from Strikeforce. It's an unbeatable incentive, and White probably does not want to resort to having the winner of Fitch vs. Alves fighting St. Pierre after the winner of Koscheck vs. Daley gets a crack at him.

If not, maybe the loser of Fitch vs. Alves. Somebody in the UFC's top five welterweights, considering Shields's beefed-up status as a dominant figure across two divisions. He would deservedly start high on the UFC's ladder, regardless.

More of a reason to give it to him. He went up to a weight he doesn't normally fight at, and dominated...dominated Dan Henderson.

Give him GSP.

Anthony Johnson or winner of Alves/Fitch depending on where you want to start him off at.

Either way i think he loses personally.
