Dana White: Jake Shields could be next in line for welterweight title shot

UFC President, Dana White has revealed that UFC newcomer, Jake Shields may receive the next welterweight title shot and not Jon Fitch. It was assumed that the winner of Fitch vs. Alves II at UFC 117 last month would be next in line, but now White appears to be looking to cash in on Shield’s high profile arrival and maybe overlook Fitch.

White, speaking via Fighters Only Magazine, said:

“I want to wait for Koscheck and St. Pierre to happen and then we’ll figure put who gets the next shot. By then Jake Shields will have fought Kampmann…a lot of it is timing.”
