Shields may not have looked as crisp as he usually does, but he did his job.
He had Daley mounted 3 times, went for three arm bars, scored 4 takedowns and ended the fight in the second by submission.
He was never rocked or hurt by Daleys punches, and so what if he didn't want to engage with Daley in a standing war. He was smart for not trading with a guy who has about 13 knockouts out of 15 victories or so.
Bottom line is he played his game and won. As far as gassing is concerned, his tank has never emptied in a fight. He's been the distance before.
A sloppy performance doesn't take away from the fact that he hasn't lost since '04 and has solid victories over decent opponents. Even Semtex is a notch in his belt. Every one has an off night. I find it funny how one sloppy performance is erasing years of accomplishments in some peoples eyes.
