    Like Scott Smith last night, Shields (who was won 13 in a row), is able to win fights that he is losing up until that point. I think Dan will win and is a bad matchup for him, but Dan shouldn't be favored by more than 2.5 - 1 imo

    When has Shields won a fight that he was losing at the time? And how is he going to do it? His primary offense is submissions, and...well, Dan is ridiculously hard to submit, and Shields relies on getting on top of someone for the most part.

    Paul Daley comes to mind.

    I think Dan is the favorite - I want to be clear about that. But Shields has found a way to beat all his recent opponents including Lawler, so I won't count him out. He has a size and striking disadvantage and needs to get Dan down before being dropped

    Dan is the favorite but i think it could be a tough fight. While dan is tough to submit shields still has the advantage on the ground. Dan always has been taken down by guys with less wrestling, so if he gets too overzealous with his right hand he could get taken down in this one.

    You guys ever watch Wild Kingdom, when Marlin Perkins and Jim are watching the lion hunt down and feast on a gazelle(sp)? thats what Hendo v Shields is gonna be like.

    so was that question a setup? I just remember thinking Shields was getting battered and a hard time getting a takedown, don't remember him winning the first, but I'm sure you're right.
