It is being reported that that a Dan Henderson vs. Jake Shields Strikeforce Middleweight Title bout is in the works. Both men are reportedly in the end stages of the negotiations, and while bout agreements have not been signed, the proposed bout will likely take place in April on the next Strikeforce on CBS
event.

not saying shields would win but shields has a chin. but hendo hits hard. but i could see shields pullin a crazy sub in the later rounds but only if he can survive the onslaught of hendo

I am so happy about this finally Shield will face someone that that is a top 10 fighter. Shield will not able to take Hendo, he doesn't posses the power to KO Hendo. The only way i see Shield winning is by jumping guard but against Phill Arris Hendo would just get up and if Phil Arris could not sub Henco i really don't Shield doing it.

I can't wait to see Shields brought down a few notches.

I'm going to bet on Hendo, but does anybody feel like this is a bit of a trap-match for Hendo? I can't shake that feeling. There should be no reason Jake would win the fight, but then again there should be no reason the Steelers lose to the Raiders at home.

It's going to be a better fight than we give Shields credit for. Still hate him. I don't think Henderson will get a knockout, but I think he'll take the decision with out taking any damage.

Yea, on paper there is no way Hendo can lose. However, this isn't fought on paper.

I can only seeing Shields winning by sub, and I can't imagine Hendo getting caught, but who knows.

Shields shouldn't be able to affect Hendo on the feet and he shouldn't be able to out grapple him either. So, that only leaves a crazy sub.

Shields has no chance in this fight, he has horrible standup and he will not be able to take Hendo down.

Good luck Jakey, but you're gonna get crushed.

Very true. The knock on Hendo used to be that he didn't defend subs that well and that he had a tendency to be kinda boring at times. We have not seen either in a while, but I wonder how boring this fight will be if it is only Jake trying to get it to the ground and Hendo sprawling. At its worst, this fight could be a combination of Shields/Miller and Hendo/Palhares.

This will probably be a competitive fight but you just have to root for Hendo in this situation.

I wouldn't doubt if Shields postpones this for as long as possible.
