This should be an interesting fight, Jake looks to be favorite but I think Dan Henderson could really pull this one off.
How is Shields the Favorite? I'm not saying he CAN'T win, but I haven't seen too many people say he can. Being the favorite means most people think that person will win. Personally, I think that it would be great if he won because then the UFC nutthuggers would realize that StrikeForce actually does have good fighters but I don't see Shields pulling it off. It's not impossible but I just don't see it.
I was just looking at the betting odds. I mean where else you get the idea of what people think the outcome of a sporting event would be. I personally don't care who wins, I just hope for a great fight.
Really?!? Shields is ahead on the odds? That is bizarre. I go by what people on the forums and in the gym say. I haven't heard too many people say they think Shields will win. I guess if the bookies have him as the favorite then from a betting standpoint he is technically the favorite. I am shocked to hear that is the case though.
if hendo is the underdog then where do i go to bet?? :D
I'm betting Hendo wins, but I think it would be hilarious if he lost.
Would blow up in Strikeforce's face that they are paying him retarded amounts of money win or lose, lol.
Also would get rid of that voice in the back of Hendo's mind that keeps telling him hes worth more than current champions.
U cant, read betting odds i guess because HENDO is the favorite -500 SHEILDS +325
it was different when I checked, guess it must've changed
I was surprised too, but who knows, maybe closer to the fight, odds will change, and as I said above, I think Hendo will pull the W. Based on the "weak" above though, people disagree, so really can't say what everyone thinks.
Where can I place a bet. I really don't know much about gambling but if Shields is ahead in the odds I may consider betting on Hendo and likely making a few bucks.
he is only the favorite because he is the champion
I dont understand why people hate on him. A great fighter, and a cool guy. Dont know of he'll beat hendo though...
If Shields wins Dana gona pay lots of money to get him
Jake Shields will submit Dan Henderson In the second round. Ok, I'm not sure it's going to happen, but i wouldn't mind seeing that at all LOL
ur dumb go back to playing with ur barbies
Wow, there are actually 3 people in the world that are too dumb to realize UnderDogGreatness was joking.
You sound really uptight my man.
Some people just can't take a joke man
What betting odds have you guys been looking at? I saw his odds as shields as underdog by far- Hendo -525 and Shields +330?
Shields has a terrible chin and laughable striking in comparison to Hendo. Also, Hendo's right hand is an atomic bomb (see his Wandi or Bisping fights). I have no idea how Shields is going to get Hendo (a decorated wrestler) down to the mat. This fight will turn into a Hail Mary takedown match with shields getting punished with each failed takedown attempt..
Shields will be KO'd before the 3rd round, IMO.
Agreed. On a side note, are you going to change your screen name whenever you earn a belt promotion? JK.
That's great. Honestly, since it takes FOREVER to get a promotion with Rickson (ten year black belt is "fast"), I'm guessing this website won't be around by the time it happens. Good comment, though :)
Does it feel like to anyone else that Strikeforce is handing Jake to the wolves cause they are expecting him to jump to the UFC. Which is a good move on Jake's part i really want to see him against the WW in the UFC.
u already know homie!dana even thinks thats dana wants to sign shields and i hope he does i would love shields to get knocked the **** out more,i would even pay 4 it.
