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.
    Robbie Lawler was supposed to KO him too, but instead ended up on the wrong side of a Shields' standing guillotine. I don't know how to describe Jake's style, maybe "sticky Jiu-Jitsu"? He just ties people up, and they can't shake him off.

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

    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.

    Lombard is going to beat Shields badly enough to have assault charges pressed against him. And I'll be there to see it live! Can't wait.

    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.

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