Henderson: Shields is bigger than me

"Jake is bigger than me. He does cut quite a bit of weight to get to 185. I think it’s a good matchup. I’m excited about it".

Jake has a slim chance at a decision win. I think the best Jake could hope for is Dan by decision.Could be a repeat KO for Dan.

I do find it pretty lame that Dan had no interest in fighting at 185 in the UFC, unlesss it was against Anderson, but will fight Shields in Strikeforce, a blown up middleweight and true WW any way Dan wants to spin it. Maybe if they are the same size they can fight at 170. I know Jake will have no problem making 170. Lets see Dan at 170. Guess Dan doesn't really want to fight Mousasi.

I don't totally hate Jake's chances here, and I really think he can either outwork Henderson en route to a decision win, or catch a flash submission. Jake's been in trouble with Daley and Lawler, yet managed to pull out the win as soon as he got that one chance. And granted, the Okami bout was at 175, but Shields was able to get past another big, strong grappler at that point. Examining past Hendo opponents, I'm also trying to think if Dan has faced anyone with the dangerous combination of wrestling and submissions like Shields.The Lawler fight in particular was just so impressive, as Shields just needed to get the overhook with the head down before securing a lightning-quick guillotine. Hendo is the favorite for good reason, but Jake is not out of this fight by any means IMO.
