Even if that was true, I don't see how he can lose this fight. EB is a quality fighter but Shields is a tier above him in just about every respect, I don't think I'd be surprised if Shields won the stand up either.

Anyway, if he dose have a bad showing its not like we don't know he's going through a emotional time right now.

I don't care who started what, but no more posts about this dumb drama. Let's get back to Jake and his dad. I'm going to delete further posts and infract if necessary.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Hey, this self proclaimed higher power had this one covered.

On topic, i'm really starting to get behind him now. Time to bring out the specialist video again.

It takes massive courage, inner peace and composure to go ahead in a moment like this.

I guess Shields has these qualities.

I hope it won't affect his fighting though.

I picked Ellenberger before this fight and i still think he wins it.

It says a lot about someone who can do this. I too picked Ellenberger, but I can see Shields digging deep for this.

To lose a good friend, manager and father would devastate most people and leave them in a rut for a long time to come.

My hat goes off to him in this difficult time.

Big respect to Shields. I know he gets alot of flak but I like the guy and think he's a top fighter in two different weight classes.
