what bothers me here is "after GSP beats Shields", just as it was already a done deal
but with all the distraction GSP has had lately, I wouldn't count on a win over Shields that much.
GSP is no supernatural and I'm pretty sure his mind won't be 100% at the task when entering the octagon, facing Shields.
The question is: would it be enough for Shields to capitalize on? would GSP be able to fight and win despite the distraction ?
This superfight rumour and discussion are surely putting a lot of pressure on GSP's shoulders, can he handle it?
In a normal situation, I don't see GSP losing, but last time he was distracted, he lost by KO in the 1st round.
I know if I was GSP I wouldn't watch TV or pick up the phone until the fight, just to be able to concentrate and focus on it.
