I've been watching Shields since long before he came to Strikeforce or UFC and have to say I've never considered the guy a great "submission specialist." A great grappler, sure, but he doesn't go for submissions that often or that aggressively. He grabs them when they present themselves (like Lawler shoving his head into a guillotine) but for the most part seems content with top control.

And yes, he is a boring fighter.
