I wouldn't mind this fight at all. Makes sense and should be pretty competitive.

Woodley is a beast who will only continue to get better. I say if he can keep the fight standing he beats Shields easily. If Shields can get a takedown it could be a whole different story.

he looked great in his last fight with hieron. im glad to see he is evolving and isnt just a wrestler anymore. i got the feeling that was happening in strikeforce but that loss to nate put him on the right track.

This. What's crazy is Shields striking game has never evolved. He actually looked halfway decent against GSP, and I thought he was making progress. Ever since then, and before that fight, it has been garbage.

I would also worry about T Wood's gas tank, but at 170, Jake's gas tank isn't that great either.

What is the upside to a fight with Shields?

Jake is now entirely unranked, but as far as guys outside the top 10 he is probably one of the best fighters. Also, even if Woodley wins, good chance the fight will be boring.

Bad call.

Shields was kept...what's the difference between him and Fitch? Oh, that's the difference! He's not as good...

Classic; explosive vs. well conditioned I like it.

I thought Shields was staying at 185?
