Ed Herman has been living up to his "Short Fuse" nickname since a return this past year from a lengthy injury layoff.

The cast member of Season 3 of "The Ultimate Fighter" has been getting in and getting out of his fights quickly during a 3-0 tear, averaging just under 4 minutes a fight with three stoppages – two in the first round.

Yet still, ahead of his UFC 150 main card fight against Jake Shields on Saturday, Herman doesn't seem to be getting much attention – which is just fine with him.

Ed's got a better shot than his heavy underdog status suggests, if he got the decision I wouldn't be shocked at all.

Same.
I nearly picked Herman, but Jake is a beast on the mat.
Gotta go with Shields UD (if not Submission).
