Guard =/= control.

But people don't know shit about grappling and this myth somehow formed in MMA to explain the huge amount of American wrestlers winning fights early on....but ok.


The only thing Shields did that resembled actual scoring was a few guard passes...and Maia was FAR more offensive in round 1 on the ground...he actually did shit when he was on top.

Yeah, they didnt go apesh*t after thier fighter lost.

I had it 3-2 Shields. Jake was constantly attempting to pass, very active and aggressive. Toss in some well placed and timed elbows and a few punches and its a Jake Shields round.

MMA Guard = neutralizing any further offense because you just got put on your ass. Unless of course you pulled guard from standing. Demian didn't.

They weren't awake, that fight was like sleeping with a fat girl and then she decides to shit the bed. It was a compromise, and disappointment, and it left you feeling ashamed and dirty.

It could also be described as reading Roflcopter troll posting tonight.

If a Brazilian beat a fighter in the US, it wouldn't be that quite.

There was a lot of great bjj in that fight, and Shields displayed the better ofbthe two. Sweeps count as much as takedowns and Shields clowned him when Shields allowed him to take the back. Maybe some need to go watch more JS fights. He lets people grab guillotines and take his back sometimes because he is better than them.

They are both world champions, so I am not necessarily saying Shields is better than Maia. He clearly beat him tonight in both bjj and mma grappling.

JS being so tired is a testament to DM's defense.

This fight went exactly how I expected with JS dominating but wearing out and winning.

I have it for Shields not because I forgot but because I still think Shields did more damage.
