Correct on many levels.
Shields is a DESCENT fighter IMO and lacks quite a bit of striking skills. He is a good defensive minded fighter, but in my book extremely overrated.
The minute he faces a top tier "striker" with decent TDD he will experience a coma.
I think he should immediately come in and face someone like Thiago Alves before facing GSP.
At this point I would like to see him first get the the rumors out of the way and get signed then pick a weight class.
