But in all seriousness, I don't mind. I'm gonna go on a stretch here and say that he is the most boring fighter on the roster. If anyone can think of a more boring fighter, let me know.
Shields isn't the most exciting fighter in the UFC, but I don't consider him that boring either. He grapples intelligently, which is something I always like watching because I feel I learn from it, even if all I'm getting is tools with which to evaluate other grappling performances. To me he's a much more interesting fighter than guys like Chris Leben, who can hit hard and take a punch, but show you little to learn from.
