Shields WW champ 2014.
I know chances are he will be, but I'm seriously hoping not.

LOL. Good stuff.

If the UFC cuts your opponent immediately after you beat him, shouldn't that devalue your win? In essence, you've just beaten someone who isn't UFC-caliber.

I wasn't very entertained, but it was interesting seeing the ground exchanges. I believe Maia is more well-rounded with his grappling but his style of grappling just didn't match up with the smothering style Jake shields brings.

False. Shields obviously had Maia on his back for the majority of the fight.
