In the third bout of the UFC 150 main card, Jake Shields outgrappled Ed Herman and took a comfortable unanimous decision victory. Instead of trying to strike with Shields where he had the biggest advantage, Herman constantly tried to initiate a clinch game. It was some truly odd gameplanning, and unsurprisingly Herman never got anything going and lost.

The first round was all clinching, which was pretty boring. Shields finally got a takedown in the second and dominated on top while never really threatening with a submission. He got to mount in the third round after another takedown but didn't really threaten much there either. It wasn't the most exciting fight, let's put it that way.

What was the high point of the fight?

Shields hit a nice outside trip in the second. That's about it.

Where do they go from here?

Shields might not have been exciting, but he was impressive. It's clear that his grappling chops can help him hold his own with bigger fighters at 185. I think he should fight Yushin Okami next in a rematch of their 2006 bout that Shields won.

Herman needs to go back to the drawing board and work on fight strategy. It was always something that Team Quest took heat for, but he left to open his own gym a while ago. He's still a solid fighter though and his comeback has been fun. A bout with Nick Ring could make some sense.

Watch now, later, or never?

Never. If you're a fan of solid grappling and/or Jake Shields, you'd probably like it. For everyone else, you can definitely give it a pass.
