Dana White: Jake Shields deserved an immediate shot at GSP’s or Anderson’s title

UFC President, Dana White confirms what many questioned, whether or not former Strikeforce welterweight champion, Jake Shields deserved an immediate title shot against either UFC welterweight champion, Georges St. Pierre or UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva.

Dana, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“He just beat Dan Henderson. He should actually get the shot just for that, but timing and the way everything went. He’s going to take a fight against a really tough guy. He should get the shot coming off the Dan Henderson win, but timing and coming into the UFC, it is what it is”
