GSP will mix it up and probably feel out both striking and the ground. A lot of his interviews as of late talk about the need to finish. I think he will find the area where he feels he can finish Shields the easiest and win there. So if he thinks he can KO Shields then it will stay standing with Superman punches and kicks, if it is on the ground then expect to see GnP that rivals what he did to BJ Penn.

I don't like Shields chances in this one. I think the wise choice for GSP will be to keep it on the feet and destroy Shields with his superior striking. Shields striking is brutal for a guy contending for the title. I doubt he'll be able to over power GSP and get this fight to the ground or keep it on the ground. I think the smart thing for GSP would be to keep it on the feet and take Shields out.

As soon as the bell sounds he'll drop to his back and invite shields into his guard.

He has also been stuffed and swept by fighters like Miller, Daley, Kampmann, Condit, Lawler and others...

A lot of people are forgetting that because of how horrible Hendo did against Shields. Shields does have better ground games then most of the guys he faces but he doesn't have great take downs because he can't set them up with his striking and he gets swept quite often when going for subs against somewhat competent opponents.

Shields' only chance to win this fight is to hold GSP down for 3 rounds and at least survive the other 2.

Is this a trick question? I don't understand if you're asking a question or giving me an answer.

Stack jab...blah blah. Could repeat everyone else but you have already all said it. As interesting as this fight is there is only one real question; can Shields take GSP down?

I believe it was a rhetorical question.


Hey I just realized we have the same join date! Coming up on 4 years (for the first year I basically just read 1000 posts a day and never posted because I was too afraid of sounding like a noob!)!

If I was gsp, I'd double or triple up on viagra and forget the cup. I'd play 100% defensive and then when shields shot in I'd get north/south and thats about the time when i would... BOW CHICKA BOW WOAH

Yeah, but I haven't been on here for nearly two years. So you're still ahead of me. Lots of catching up to do.
