Sheilds is a world class ground fighter, but STILL an incomplete fighter. If the fight happens in the next 2 years, every credit and dollar I have is going on GSP. Judging on the amount of damage he was able to do to Miller in his last fight, and how close he was to being finished. I would even say a disciplined Mayhem should be able to beat him.
He did nothing to hurt Mayhem except give him a greasy staph infection, and although he controlled on the ground 90% of the fight, never came CLOSE to finishing.
I think we should be able to agree Sheilds won't be able to control GSP on the ground, so what is he going to offer?
I don't even think it would be a decision, GSP has the most underrated GnP in MMA, and I think he would make him quit within 3 rounds.
