"I'm bouncing around quite a bit [between weight classes]," Shields told MMA Fight Corner (transcribed by Fight Cove). "But probably back to welterweight, but nothing is 100 percent yet, just staying up is so much work I have to eat so much and just my weight naturally tends to go down closer to '70. So we'll see, nothing's 100 percent at the moment though.
"I'll be back in February," Shields said of his return to the Octagon. "I already dealt with the commission, yeah I'll be back in February so everything - everything was resolved. Obviously an unfortunate issue but it was resolved, I made a mistake and ready to move forwards and will be fighting again in February."
