Great fight and this could be a great card. This fight with Fedor and Gegard on the card = win.

Henderson becomes the Strikeforce middleweight champion though. I think his size, wrestling and striking ability will be too much for Shields. I am a fan of Jake though, I just can't see him pulling off the upset.

Favourite Fighters:

Dan Hardy
Paul Daley
Georges St-Pierre
Nick Diaz
Cain Velasquez
Frank Mir
Demian Maia
All the British MMA guys
And... Fedor!

Hendo will beat Shields pretty easily imo. Dan is good enough to keep it standing and Shields standup is just awful. Hendo by T(KO).

Shields is going to sleep, bank on it.

I don't care what you nuthuggers say, but this match is LOLSHIELDSDEAD.

Shield's striking is LOL, his wrestling against crappy opponents is LOL.

And every fight I'm the only fan around.

Everyone said....Daley would beat him, Lawler would beat him....hell I had a few guys telling me that Nick Thompson would KO him.

But the thing is, his hybrid wrestling and Gracie BJJ is just too much for alot of fighters to handle and he knows how to finish fighters, he's always the underdog, and he's fought tough competition his whole carreer.

He's a vet and Hendo isn't going to walk through him in any sense of the phrase.
Finally you found one....LOL


Personally, I think Hendo is going to intimidate and also beat the shit out of Shields to be simple, real talk look for the clinch of the cage then dirty boxing, at this point Hendo is kinda mini Randy Couture....

of the one that could not be stopped was J'M'M.... because monkey's are IMMORTAL!

anyways... this will come down to who enforces their kind of game; if Shields can get the Greco Roman olympian down and keep him there, Hendo's big weakness is he has no anti-BJJ. if Hendo keeps it standing/clinching, Shields is gonna find himself on the Transitional Champion footnotes.

i wish them the best....


on a business side, i think it best for them to put Hendo down to MW because if you have The Last Emperor, The Dreamcatcher and... Dan.... all in different weight classes it keeps all your big names from eating each other.

It wouldn't be so bad should Dan fight Mousasi or Fedor. I mean GSP absolutely tooled Penn and Penn is still regarded as one of the top P4P fighters in the world.

I think whoever loses out of Hendo and the others will still be seen as a very good fighter. I mean if Hendo destroys Shields, I still think that Shields is one of the top WW fighters in the world.

Either way, in the future, this is what the SF champions look like:


HW: Fedor
LHW: Mousasi
MW: Hendo or Shields
WW: Shields if he loses
LW: Aoki?


If that's how it ends up... wow. That'll draw a TON of top talent to SF.

i don't mean from a talent perspective... you're right win or lose these guys are still tops!

from a business perspective they can have these three guys on three separete matches on the same card over and over again and it would never be boring; top recognizable names, championships, domination..... money!

the biggest thing that pushed the WWE in the 90's was that it had equal competition with WCW; competition makes each other better. Strikeforce has to build itself up so that in 5-6 years it can EQUALLY compete with UFC. this is a big step towards that.
