Yeah, but in reality I think Shields is the better wrestler and we know his BJJ game is better. I could see Shields either taking him down and submitting him or we might see a boring lay and pray fight. Hopefully something like the former would happen.

Shields is the better grappler, but he is not a better wrestler. Fitch has better takedowns. Shields shot is pretty weak, which is a big reason he struggles to get fights to the ground. Shields could easily sub Fitch, he is one of the best BJJ guys at WW.

Fitch has the advantage on the feet here, he throws stronger strikes and is less awkward. I think this match will end on the ground and it will be a fun fight. I am really excited for this and then having the winner fight Palhares. I just wish Askren was with WSOF

He is hands down the best BJJ guy at WW. IMO.

I'd argue Demian Maia is better but his issue is his lack of wrestling.

Demian Maia's wrestling is fine... looked great against Fitch.

Maia had nothing BJJ wise or wrestling on the ground for Jake. He was out grappled, reversed, swept, and he never threatened for submissions because Jake wouldn't let him set up.

Jakes defensive BJJ was extremely effective.

Jake beat him everywhere on the ground.
