GSP has too many tools for Shields who is still very one dimensional (really good at that one). The biggest asset for GSP though is his transitions. Most people are either standing or are on the ground, GSP knows how to fight and control the in between phases as well. GSP via 3rd round stoppage.

You'd be mad to bet against GSP here, but i expect Jake to put up a decent fight. I think GSP will keep it standing, as i doubt Jake will be successful with takedown attempts and the gulf in ability standing is quite massive.

I hope GSP gets a finish, but i doubt it. What i can say is that if Jake does get him down, GSP could easily be in ALOT of trouble. He would be wise to avoid the ground game altogether.

GSP will score early, easily, and often. But Jake will eventually get GSP down by late round 2 or early round 3 and keep dominant positioning on him for significant portions of two or three rounds. It will be very competitive, with only one round having a clear winner - rd 1 to Georges.

Very close decision, perhaps split. Many will be unhappy with the decision either way. I'll go with Mr. Shields.

If it goes to a SD, I'd bet my life savings and house that it will go to GSP.

GSP will control the fight standing and win easily, this is an even easier matchup for GSP than Koscheck was.

GSP will win via UD all five rounds a la Koscheck II or he will stop Shields at some point in the fight.

I'm gonna have to go with my boy Shields on this one. I'm thinking an armbar or RNC.

I love his attitude and hope he brings it.

Time for a change!

I have mad respect for Jake Shields, his winning streak, and the top competition he's faced during his streak.

However I just don't see what he brings to the table (especially at WW) that is a threat to the best WW of all time in his prime. GSP has the balance and technique to avoid the takedown even if Shields does get him against the cage imo.

GSP has better conditioning, better and more diverse striking, and is pretty unpredictable with his gameplans these days.

I just want to see that dude from Canada stop someone in a title fight.

He has no reason to, but from a fan's standpoint, I would like to see him take more risks and try to finish, vs jabbing to a win or "Ground and Ground" to a win.
