It's a finishing or even a damaging tactic. It's a morale based one. Shields knows that his ground game is his sole chance to win this fight so he will expect GSP to keep the fight standing. By taking him down GSP will plant doubt into Shields mind. Disturb his confidence and disrupt his gameplan. Make him believe that GSP isn't afraid of his ground game - which in all likelihood he isn't.

At least that is what he would want to happen.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Man it astounds me how much people are underrating jakes ground game... Jake may not just toy with gsp on the ground but he is going to give him hell. Seriously the guys grappling is so bad that he has some terrible stand up and hes STILL been undefeated for 6 years.

If Jake can actually get GSP to the ground, then maybe we'll see him toy with GSP on the group. But that's if, GSP's takedown defense is second to none, so I guess we will see some heavy sprawling. I think this will be GSP's hardest challenge, I don't think he's fought against anyone who has BJJ credentials like Shields, obviously apart from BJ.

I'm gonna' shove that up your ass, and turn you into a popsicle!
