Jake Shields Vs. Tyron Woodley Likely To Go Down In Canada This Summer

UFC 161, which has yet to be announced by the promotion, appears to have a fight lined up, as MMAjunkie.com is reporting that Jake Shields will face Tyron Woodley.

The card is expected to go down in Canada on June 15, though a city has yet to be finalized.

Shields (27-6-1) has split his four UFC bouts, and is returning to welterweight after one fight as a middleweight. The former Strikeforce champion defeated Ed Herman, but the decision was changed to a no-contest after he failed the post-fight drug test.

Woodley (11-1) scored a knockout victory over Jay Hieron earlier this month in his UFC debut. He asked for a match with Shields recently, and appears to be receiving his wish.
