Shields sounding confident talking to iBN Sports as his welterweight title shot against St-Pierre in enemy territory nears.

“[The crowd] is a small factor but you can’t let that stuff get to you. When it comes down to it, it’s only gonna be me and Georges in the cage, no one else but the ref. No one is gonna help him. Yeah, the crowd is gonna be booing me and cheering him but it is what it is and something I’m gonna go out and deal with … I made the (weight cutting) mistake once, I’m definitely not gonna do it again. I’m like 184 right now so it should be a nice easy cut.”
