Jake shields is back?? Ok so I might get some flak for this but this card seems kind of meh.
For PPV, it kinda is. If you look at my special poster, you'll see why.

I think (and hope), Woodley is going to decapitate Shields. I don't have anything against Jake (other than he is so boring), but I have an expectation for Woodley to go far.
Every time I expect fireworks from Rashad it just doesn't happen. Maybe tonight can change that. Would love to see either of them shine for old times sake.
Some of these mediocre looking cards tend to end up going really well. Crossing my fingers!
Soooo glad Roy saved this card like he said. Lol.
Hopefully Jimmo has developed some cardio I'd hate for the blackzillans to lose twice assuming Rashad gets beaten.

Hey now! That's quite an assumption you're making.

That said, I feel like Rashad's got more going for him at this point than Henderson does, as far as speed, cardio, and wrestling goes. It should be his fight to lose, depending on what kind of game plan he shows up with, and if his head is back together after all the headaches surrounding his divorce.
Rashad's last fight vs Lil Nog was also his to lose. Well he lost it.
He's so fast he should be able to duck in and out and wear Hendo down.
I'm all about the old guy showin some glory tho. We will see shortly.
