I had GSP winning the first 3 clearly and the last 2 close. So 49-46 sounds fair to me.

Agreed, I think Sheilds is the WW champion if GSP doesn't exist or moves up. I also would love to see Jake fight again this year, maybe even early next year with a heavy training focus on his takedowns. If he could get the take down power of Chael "garbage bag" Sonnen, then he sould be a beast.

Can't believe the ignorance on the forum after this event. Shields doesn't have awful standup, it's just ugly, he did the same thing to Henderson standing and to Kampmann, he looks retarded but he lands a lot and is great at not taking shots.


GSP vs. Shields was an epic tactical battle and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.

But blaming GSP for this fight is ridiculous.

Yes: Shields has horrible stand-up - knew it before the fight, know it afterwards also. SO WHAT: is that GSP's fault now?! That Shields couldn't do shit on the feet?!
Is it GSP's fault because Shields couldn't get a TD?!

Everytime one of GSP's fight ends, it's his fault for the fight not being too spectacular.
His opponent always gets the benefit of not being good enough for him. All of his opponents are labeled as having horrible striking, or terrible wrestling or BJJ.
Yup. When was the last time we had a good GSP fight that people would watch over & over again? For me that would be his fight against Jon Fitch. What did Fitch do that no one else has really done since then? He took the fight to GSP for the entire 5 rounds and never gave up or let off the pressure even when he was getting one of the worst beatings I've seen in a long time.

Does GSP share some of the blame? Sure. But if his opponents aren't going to take the fight to him then this is what happens. You want the title go make a fight of it and take it.

It wasn't boring it was tactical, and if Jake had better executed whatever plan he had, he may well have won.

Notice in one of the rounds, he purposely took Jake down with no time left so he'd get the points with no risk. This is very defensive fighting but I imagine it will continue until he loses or someone starts to dominate him.

I'm sure its been stated before but I think GSP's eye affected him a lot more than people think it did. If I remember correctly you need two functioning eyes for proper depth perception? That would explain why he started to eat more shots later in the fight. And the way he was worried about it every time he went to his corner makes me think it was definitely getting to him mentally too. I know he's notorious for not finishing fights, but I feel he has a legitimate excuse in this one. Solid win in my book.

What bothered me in the fight was not that GSP didn't finish but that Shields didn't shoot for many take downs and was content to stand and trade.

Would love to see a match up with Diaz after seeing his last fight though.

I really don't understand why everyone keeps calling the fight boring. I just re-watched it. The last round was a little slow, but every other round was pretty good. GSP rocked shields rounds 1-3.

People around here are just way too harsh. They want highlight reel fights or nothing. GSP just beat a guy who hasn't lost in 6 years... and he did it with one eye for most of the fight. That is damn impressive.

That event was so freaking weird, GSP just doesn't have any real fight in him. He wants to protect his legacy, that's it. I am kind of awaiting the day he just retires because the nonsense last night was unbearable, we need a champ who fights because he wants to fight, not because he wants to be the greatest ever.

GSP tends to overshadow everyone, but was anyone else disappointed in Sheilds? I sure was.

I'm a huge GSP fan and I'm glad he won, but for a guy who hasn't lost in 6 years, Sheilds really didn't impress me. Not that he couldn't get GSP down, because I knew his takedowns would get stuffed, and Shields striking was a little better than expected, but the last round.

I like Sheilds because he is a very smart tactical fight, but he didn't even try and do what he had to do in the last round. He knew he was losing, he absolutely knew, because he raised GSP's hand himself at the end. But he didn't go for it, he hardly tried any takedowns in the 5th, and he wasn't throwing anywhere near enough big bombs. For a guy who is so calculating and intelligent most of the time, I thought he really blew it, even Rogan talked about his lack of urgency.

For a comparison, look at what Hominick did against Aldo. He still lost, but he left everything he had in the ring, he let it all hang out in the last part of the fight. It really didn't look to me like Shields did at all, he looked resigned to losing.
