Shields striking is so bad that I can see Herman winning by UD if he stays disciplined with his striking and some good TDD.

I am picking Herman. He has been a monster since recovering from his injury.

I'll be rooting for Herman, always been a fan and he's been looking beastly since his recovery.

Objectively picking a winner though, gotta lean towards Jakey boy, hoping Herman can pull off a huge upset though.

I think Jake Shields is better than Herman in every area of the fight and that his only worry would be a flash KO...however fighters switching weight classes always worry me. This fight could end up being a Hathaway/Sanchez fight where Sheilds just isn't all together for this one. This is a no bet for me...but I am very excited to see what happens.

Ed is basically Jake with less ability, I like him but Jake should run over him.

I really really hope Shields gets a big win here..... I just don't have a ton of faith he can get it to the ground.

I'm scared for Shields in this fight. I'm rooting for him but Ed came very well finish this fight on the feet or with ground and pound.

1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

You guys are underestimating Hermans ground game which imo is his best area. I can see Jake grinding out a win but I don't see how he finished Ed. Ed though, could easily punch a hole in jakes fake, hopefully
