Melendez on Shields: “He already cleaned out Strikeforce, so now it’s time for him to clear out the UFC.”

Strikeforce lightweight champion, Gilbert Melendez gives his thoughts on his training partner, Jake Shields newest move to the UFC from Strikeforce.

Melendez, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“I think he’s going to do great out there. I really want to see him fight Georges St-Pierre. I know he can beat GSP and I look forward to seeing that happen. Of course I wish he was with me in Strikeforce, but he’s got to do what he’s got to do and I support him 100 percent. I think it’s time for him to go for broke. He already cleaned out Strikeforce, so now it’s time for him to clear out the UFC.”
