Just because he can't take a punch, doesn't mean he can give one. I give Maia the edge in striking as well as grappling.

Taking the H-Bomb is impressive. It doesn't mean you have good standup though. It means you have a good chin.

Shields has since been TKO.... which may show his chin is depleting.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

He didn't "stand up to it" he was just about knocked out and held on due to shitty finishing.


Maia doesn't need to knock him out anyway, all he has to do is punch him in the face more than he gets jabbed or straight kicked or whatever...however Im sure their will be heavy grappling in this fight one or the other.

I would like Shields to win, but I feel like Maia is going to pull it off. But if Jake pulls the ace out of his sleeve and manages to get a sub, I'll be jumping for joy. Know a lot of guys think he's boring as hell, but hope he pulls a rabbit out of his hat!

That's the guy who is supposed to be too much on the ground for GSP?

Shields kicks are so bad, how is he a pro fighter?

I scored it for Maia as well but the awful judges probably gave it to Shields because he was ontop at the end.

10-10.

Those overlooking Shield's grappling skills should reassess.
