After a one-and-done dip in the Octagon’s middleweight pond, Jake Shields (pictured) will return to the welterweight division to fight fellow former Strikeforce star Tyron Woodley at UFC 161. Shields confirmed the heavily rumored scrap late Tuesday night via Twitter. Shields posted an uneventful unanimous decision victory over Ed Herman at UFC 150. However, the 34-year-old flunked his post-fight drug test and was issued a six-month suspension. The August bout was subsequently overturned to a no contest. The former Strikeforce middleweight champion owns a respectable 27–6–1 (1 NC) professional record, but has won just two of five under the UFC’s banner. Woodley made his big league debut in spectacular fashion by knocking out Jay Hieron in 36 seconds at UFC 156. The wrestler holds an impressive 11-1 resume. MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Canada hosts the festivities. Here is the card’s current roster: Roland Delorme vs. TBD Soa Palelei vs. Stipe Miocic Jake Shields vs. Tyron Woodley Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
