A fight that is anticipated when it has excitement leading up to it is something truly great. Herman/Shields lacked excitement because it was clear how it was gonna go, Shields was always in control.
Think again

Jake Shields is rubbish. He'll never finish anyone worth mentioning. Herman shouldn't even be in there against a former Strikeforce champ

This is true, he had a stupid gameplan though. IMO he could have beaten Shields with sprawl and brawl.

Yeah, during the first and second round I was yelling for him to break and start throwing bombs. It was so frustrating, I hate it when a fighter feels like he has to prove that he can hang in the other guys strength area, it very rarely works out well.

I thought Shields would put on a bit of a show tonight so I was pretty disappointed with this fight. He got the win against a decent fighter but it was still a pretty average performance.
