Haha this is hilarious. I posted in another thread that people are going to go "GSP tried to finish, he threw 188 overhand rights!"....yeah, about 3 minutes into the first round they were all telegraphed and left no mark on the fight at all.

No, he didn't try. He had Shields hurt with the head kick and had the opportunity to engage Shields as he pulled guard...still rocked obviously, and GSP stood over him and did nothing. Nothing.

He could have finished the fight right there if he wanted to...but didn't.

Yeah, the first guy to beat Shields in 6 years...also the first guy that Shields didn't take down and had to use his stand-up to win the fight. I do not dog GSP for keeping the fight on the feet and trying to beat Shields where he was the weakest...it's the fact that Jake Shields is the worst striker in the welterweight division and GSP showed no effort to finish. *siigh* and yet again, people are failing to realize the point and wondering off into their own little world of arguments with holes.
Did you watch Shields vs. Henderson? I'm assuming you didn't because if you did, you would've thought that Henderson could've finished Shields easily if he wanted to too. What ended up happening in that fight? Shields won decisively despite being hurt badly by Hendo early on. Say what you will, but Shields is tough.

LOL'ing at GSP needing to change camps... 'cos some fight fans don't like his boring style... seriously. I mean yeah, is he exciting... well, not exactly. But you guys want THE CHAMP, who seems unbeatable at welterweight... to change camps... because he doesn't look motivated???!

Take a step back and think about that. You're GSP -- shit tons of cash / Gatorade and Under Armor endorsements / and hopefully swimming in a buffet of poon... and you're gonna change camps 'cos Joe UFC Fan thinks you're boring?!


Instead you guys should be calling out every other WW fighter out there for not going up to GSP, punching him in his imbressively pretty face, and taking that title belt from him instead??? Let's get that Diaz - GSP fight booked stat, aiiight?

i don't think you saw that fight because dan was gassed bad, a sudden gust of wind would have made him fall over.

GSP's in this great camp and his fans claim that he is some sort of superfighter that could beat godzilla but he couldn't even dominate a guy who is worse then fitch in every area except submissions.

Long time ago, I used to be a Jake Shields hater... but grew to respect him over the years. Kid's a gamer.

And let's be honest here...

Jake Shields did more damage to GSP tonight than Josh Koscheck, Jon Fitch, and Thiago Alves did... combined.

Not trying to pick on you in particular Guy, I just gotta give kudos to Shields, that's all.

This fight was sooooo freaking boring.

It's not all GSP's fault, I mean Jake is also not a very exciting fighter, but holy hell, what would have been an A event went to a -B simply because of the main event.
This.

I'd rather not see GSP on loaded cards anymore. I was looking forward to this one.

GSP get's way too much crap in here. It's not he's fault that he is so much superior to his opponents and get's to play it safe with them. There's nobody pushing him and until a worthy opponent comes, the fights aren't going to change.

No doubt. He took GSP's hardest strikes and kept right on coming with no real visible damage. GSP was busted up. Great win for Georges, but I wonder who can really threaten Jake in the division?

I've got several things on my mind right now...

First of all GSP lost two rounds against Jake Shields while standing up. That's just crazy. I don't understand how this happened. The takedown was no threat at all, Jake's standup was never gonna be a threat to anyone and still he managed to win two rounds (nevermind that judge who scored it 50-45, that guy must've been blinded by Machida's front jump kick).

Second, GSP didn't look like he wanted to be in there after the second round at all. Jake took over from there. It almost looked like a parody.

Third, I think if GSP hadn't secured that takedown late in round 3 we'd have a new champion right now.

Wow... I almost can't believe I said that.

Edit: What's all this GSP is superior talk? The fight was close as hell. GSP certainly won 1 and 2, and Jake won the fifth. Personally I gave the third to GSP because of the takedown and the fourth to Jake because he seemed to land more often.
