Bad match up for Shields, he's go to get knocked out violently and most likely cut from the UFC following this one.

I think it's a horrible match up! A power striker with poor to decent tdd/wrestling vs a superb grappler with damn near zero finishing ability. The first minute of the fight will likely show the results of the entire fight.

Interesting fight for sure. Jake surprised me in the Woodley and Maia fights and I can't wait to see if Lombard can negate his style and work him on the feet.
I have to diasagree with him getting cut if he loses but if he can't grind Lombard out he will most likely be on the wrong end of a KO

If Shields wins this the UFC are screwed.

Win over Tyrone Woodley, Damian Maia and Hector Lombard isn't a win streak you can simply ignore.

If Okami beat Lombard in the clinch, Shields could pull this off, especially if Lombard gasses.

Even if he gets beat I dont see how cutting Jake Shields makes any sense.

He is clearly a top 15 arguably a top 10 welter weight who has won his last couple fights.

The same way Fitch did and Askren's free agency gets ignored.

I like this fight a lot.

I could see Lombard getting the KO, but if it happens I highly doubt Shields will be cut no matter how boring he may be.

I'm picking Shields. I've tried to deny it, but he is just so good.
If this fight goes past round 1, it;s Shields' fir the taking.
