Video: Jake Shields still contemplating move to middleweight, will know within the next week or two

"I'm just trying to lift a lot of weights, eating a lot, gaining a little weight. I'm putting a few pounds on, just gotta make sure it's the right kind of weight. I imagine within the next week or two I'll have a for sure answer (on a possible move to middleweight)."

Just last month it was announced on UFC Tonight on FUEL TV that former welterweight title contender Jake Shields would be moving back up to the middleweight division, where he once ruled the roost over in Strikeforce. But apparently that announcement was a bit rushed, as Shields reveals just last night that he's not quite sure on whether or not he will compete at 170 or 185-pounds his next time out. He did say he expects to know for sure within the next week or two. Which division would you rather see him in, Maniacs? Welterweight or middleweight?
