Shields by submission, he's gonna put himself back into the mix at 185.

If Jake can get in and put Herman away clean and fast I have no doubt he will be catapulted into a big MW fight.

Supporting Jake and the Scrap Pack all day.

Finally Jake smartened up and went back to MW.

I love me some Ed Herman, but I can't see him winning this fight in any way. I'll say Shields by submission round 3.

Herman is probably good enough to make this a fight and since Jake doesn't have finishing power standing and doesn't even go for submissions these days you never know. This will tell us more about how Herman than Shields either way.

Herman is tough but Shields should be too good for him. I think he'll get a sub late in round 1.

Not confident in picking either tbh. Shields has had some huge set backs, will be interesting to see if he can put himself back on track.

I'm excited to actually see the Shields we were sold by the UFC.

His wrestling should be vastly more effective, as should his grappling and sub games.

Looking forward to this fight!
