The 35-year-old former Strikeforce welterweight champion was let go on Monday following over three years with the company. Shields last fought at UFC 171 when he lost a unanimous decision to Hector Lombard. "Jake Shields has been released by the UFC. Jake appreciates the opportunities provided by the UFC and thanks Dana White and Lorenzo Fertita," Shieldss manager Lex McMahon said in a statement to MMAFighting.com. "Jake is an elite athlete who is one of the best welterweight fighters in the world with a long history of winning at a championship level."

Jake thanks his fans for their support and looks forward to competing for them again soon." http://www.hockeyavalancheshop.com/Burgundy-Red-Matt-Duchene-Jersey/ . After Fred put Brazil ahead in the 57th minute in Rio de Janeiro, Wayne Rooney teed up Alex Oxlade-Chamberlains leveler and then curled England in front with a deflected goal. But Paulinhos goal in the 82nd minute ensured England would fail to replicate its victory over Brazil at Wembley Stadium four months ago. http://www.hockeyavalancheshop.com/Burgundy-Red-Rob-Ramage-Jersey/ . Even the best options comes with some question marks. The Dodgers Hanley Ramirez may be the best option, though hes played fewer than 100 games twice in the past three seasons. DALLAS -- Matt Moulson was pleased after the best goal-scoring night of his career. The New York Islanders left winger also felt he could have had more. Moulson had a career-high four goals, and linemates John Tavares and P.A. Parenteau contributed three assists each as the Islanders held on to beat the Dallas Stars 5-4 on Saturday night. "He was all over the net," Tavares said of Moulson. "He probably could have had six or seven. He was on fire." Moulson scored twice in the wild, seven-goal second period, giving the Islanders a 5-4 edge off a 3-on-2 break with 2:50 left with his team-high 13th goal of the season. Moulson also missed on a breakaway and had several other scoring chances, finishing with seven shots on goal and three others that missed the net. He was eager to credit the setup work by Tavares and Parenteau. "They really gave me some good chances, all I had to do was sweep it into an open net," Moulson said. "The wins the biggest part. Score as many goals as you want, but the wins the most important thing." Moulson is the first Islanders player to score four goals since Viktor Kozlov against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden exactly five years ago -- Dec. 3, 2006. The Islanders record is five, set by Bryan Trottier in 1978 against the Rangers and matched by John Tonelli in 1981 against Toronto and Trottier in 1982 against Philadelphia. Dylan Reese added his first goal of the season for the Islanders. Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro left after two periods because of a groin injury, and replacement Al Montoya stopped all 13 shots he faced in the final period. Eric Nystrom, the son of former Islanders great Bobby Nystrom, connected for Dallas, giving him 10 goals in his last 16 games. Tomas Vincour, Jake Dowell and Tom Wandell had their first goals of the season for the Stars. Moulson shovelled a power-play rebound of Taveras shot past goalie Andrew Raycroft at 8:55 of the opening period, then gave New York a two-goal pad at 10::54 of the first period after the puck bounced off the end boards on a shot by Tavares and onto Moulsons stick. http://www.hockeyavalancheshop.com/Burgundy-Red-PA-Parenteau-Jersey/. Reese made it 3-0 at 2:48 of the second period on a shot-pass from centre point that fluttered past Raycrofts glove. Dallas rallied with three goals in a 2:03 span to tie the game 3-3. "We have some resiliency, I dont think thats going to change for us," Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said. "However, we cant keep battling back every night. Weve got to play with a little sense of urgency at home and make sure our first periods are better." Vincours deflection at 3:27 got the Stars on the board, and Nystrom struck from in front of the net at 4:53 to make it a one-goal game. Dowell tied it at 5:30, but Moulson completed his hat trick 27 seconds later to put the Islanders back in front. Wandell beat DiPietro with a 40-foot slap shot with 3:52 to go in the period to tie it at 4-4. The Isles began the night averaging 2.04 goals, last in the NHL. New York had been shut out three times in its previous seven games. But the Islanders, coming off Friday nights 5-4 shootout loss at Chicago, have picked up the pace with nine goals in their last two games. The Islanders went 3-0-1 on a four-game trip that concluded in Dallas, where the Stars had been 9-3-1. "It wasnt the prettiest, but we got three of four points in these last two games," Tavares said.
