    Who do you think will win, how, and what round?

    I was pretty surprised to see Shields as a 2-1 favorite. Lines opened at ~130, then shifted towards shields.

    Personally I think palhares should be -150 and I think he gets the heelhook in round 1 if I had to pick.

    This easily could be a horrendous fight though, and also both guys have tested positive before.

    Palhares spends most the fight taking down and suplexing Jake, doesn't get the heel hook but is perhaps close at some points. Ends up in some trouble himself but ultimately outmuscles Shields to a UD.

    Palhares by 1 round sub, or Shields by boring decision. Shields should be a slight favourite.

    Shields is too smart to fall for anything Palhares throws at him.

    I'm taking Shields, great top control and is smart enough to keep his legs far out of Palahares' reach.
