    Shields/Lombard is an interesting fight. We all already know what each man is planning on doing once they enter the cage with each other. We're either going to see Shields get a hold of Lombard, drag him down, and play his game all the way to a DEC or SUB, OR we will see Lombard find a way to blitz Jake and knock him out violently.

    Fun one! I hope Lombard takes it.

    Why do you hate Johny? I actually feel the opposite. I think Johny is a very bad match for Shields.

    Looking at him I don't see why anyone would either, but damn... Shields wins fights. I hope Lombard wins though, but Shields is probably one of the most dangerous fights for him.

    He kicked Hendo's ass also. Very strange how he fares against different guys, it is hard to predict.

Maia was seen as a potential bad matchup by some but Shields' wrestling was better than his and his jiu jitsu top game was good enough to neutralize Maia's bottom game.

    Lombard could end this violently but Shields has proven people wrong time and time again and he could [and is very likely to] neutralize Lombard and win this as well. He is in the Fitch boat in that he may never get a title shot again but his opponent may get one after beating him.

    GSP is one of my favorite fighters but the division is a lot more interesting than it has been in a very long time.

    Shields by Guillotine from the top in the first. Hector has a punchers chance but really I think Shields will clench pull guard and sweep.

    I like shields but I see him getting tagged and dropped in this one. Tko stoppage in the second to set up a ww div that has an absolute murderer's row at the top of it. I see nothing but carnage surrounding the belt for some time to come. I love gsp but this is going to be fun while he's away !
