I am a huge fan of both of these guys, more so Shields. I think its going to be a more competitive fight than most seem to think

I think this fight will be competitive but believe Maia holds the edge on the ground. Not taking anything away from Shields, but I have a feeling he'll get tapped or lose a decision. But if Jake wins, he'll do it with superior control. Highly doubt he'll be able to submit Maia.

I think what we'll see is Shields taking Maia's back. Then Maia will reverse it and work from his guard. I very much would like to see a ground game battle vs a horrid striking match. Jake always seems off balance when he's striking. Just really clumsy the way he strikes and goes for takedowns. Good person, wish em all the best. But Maia is the more decorated grappler.

Wow the vote total doesn't really show how close this fight really is. Neither guy has the power to even make the other guy blink. Shield's winning should surprise anyone.

Maia is generally a much better fighter than Shields so it definitely would surprise me if Shields won...

He isn't too impressive as a fighter.

I don't understand how anyone can even come up with that assessment. Jake has had the better MMA career.

Impressive plays no factor in winning or losing fights, and Jake has won a lot of fights against top flight competition. He has the tools to make a fight out of this regardless of the odds or how impressed some people are by him. I think Maia has neutralizing abilities to Jake's best strengths though, but on the feet, with these two, it could get silly fast.
