    Very good card, there’s a possibility that a triple upset could occur here, the 3 underdogs have a chance, Lawler, woodley and Jury….I know it’s a long shot but what a night It can become….LOmbard throttles Shields, that’s the only one sided fight I see on the main card….

    All very good fights, but I’d say Jury has the largest chance of pulling off the upset (if he should even be the underdog). Woodley has a good chance but I’d put my money on Condit for sure, and I think Robbie has come far and as much as I respect the way he has stepped up his game in the last couple years, Hendricks is gonna walk away with that one…in my opinion.

    I confess I don’t like Shields not even a tiny bit. But please…Shields doesn’t get “throttled” by anyone. He may be boring but he’s a very very high level fighter and an outstanding grappler.
    Just look at his wins, Hendo,Woodley,Maia,Lawler,Condit…I don’t know how the bets are, but I don’t think Lombard brings anything new to the table, more like the opposite, while Shields already faced and defeated way better fighters than Lombard, Lombard never faced someone with the pedigree of Shields.
