Mike Pierce said he drew motivation from a meeting at UFC 162 where fighters were told they should wow fans if they wanted to be paid and placed better in the promotion. He believes he did just that at UFC 162 and now wants to do it again.

Even though it's got boring written all over it I'm interested in whether or not Shields could get him down. If he can he might dominate.

I agree with Pierce. He needs a step up in comp

Four wins in a row and along with real competitive fights against Hendricks and Koscheck. A fight with Shields would make a lot of sense. I dont think the UFC wants to push Shields too much, and probably didnt like the fact that he defeated a touted prospect. Either way, its a good competitive match and an increase in competition - which is what Pierce needs.
