Shields, a top 10 welterweight for most of the past decade and former middleweight champion of Strikeforce, is off to a slow start in the UFC. He barely squeaked past Martin Kampmann in his debut then lost to champion Georges St. Pierre in a lackluster, but one-sided, performance.
Ellenberger has really thrived in the UFC. A young fighter who had to fight for several years before getting his big break, Ellenberger is definitely in title contention and a win over Shields could put him in the cage with GSP in short order.
