Meh, Jake Shields was embarrassing, his standup looks like from jiu-jitsu guy from early 90s. Sad thing is, GSP was barely any better. I wonder where is that fighter that took the belt few years back gone? Anyway, i hate to see main event to be the worst fight on otherwise great card.

People need to give Jake the respect he deserves, its not like GSP threw him a beating and walked away unscathed.

I dont think anyone other than BJ Penn has gave GSP that much trouble standing. Jakes hands did improve but I think he should have got more desperate with the takedown attempts and wile it wasn't always dynamic I didn't think it was boring either.

Jake and Fitch need to fight to see who's the true second best in the world. Jake is IMO the De facto number two in the world until something else changes.

Credit

gotta give it up to Shields... his only chance for victory was on the ground. When he couldnt get him down, he didnt go Maia and lay on his back trying to get him to come down with him. He stayed up, looked awkward, and managed to do some damage.

Im curious what all the GSP fans would have said if Shields pulled that same kind of stunt. Where Silva was killed for not going after them, I guarantee if the situation happened for GSP, everyone would have ripped Shields.

He already is training all over he world, with the best coaches/sparring partners.

GSP needs a shock imo. Something to reset him to the state of mind he had earlier in his career.
Likewise I meant Jackson's strategy and cornering. I wasn't saying GSP should leave Jackson, I just added it as an option to your post on page 24....where you said that GSP move up to MW or lose a fight at WW are his two options to getting him back to his style from a few years ago. I was just saying they're not his only two choices.

Diaz won't come near beating him, because his biggest weakness is wrestling.

Daley took him down!!!!!!!!!!
GSP will take him down also and grind him, just like he did against Hardy or Alves.

Simple as that.

Strike with wrestlers and grapplers, wrestle with strikers and grind the brawlers.

EASY!

PS: 48-47 is BS - 49-46 more likely. Shields didn't win 2 rds. NO WAY!
So he's going to hold Diaz down for 5 rounds without getting submitted? I think if he trys to go to the ground he's facing one of the best submission artists in the game and I think people dont give Nick the respect he deserves because he's a prick but the truth is his bjj has only gotten better and better over the years and his striking as well.

I think he has the tools to beat GSP regardless of if he would or would not win at least we can all say we want to see them fight right?

I thought Shields would be able to get 1 Takedown lol^^

There is no competition for GSP at this level anymore.. Diaz shouldn't even be in the dicussion here.

I thought the fight was alright.. but what can you do after those two fights before?

It's impossible to shine there in the Main Event.

It was weird seeing Shields actually bloody up GSP standing. Who would have thought Shields would be the fighter to give GSP the most trouble on the feet.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Never in my life did i think that.

Respect to Jake... I'd actually be more interested in Jake moving up to MW to fight Silva, then GSP.

He just cut gsp with his gloves on some weak punches it isn't like he exploded GSP's face with a power punch like Kampmann did to Diego.

This fight showed to me that GSP is mentally not as strong as most fighters imho. I agree that he fights to "not lose" than to win.

But props to him, he officially has no more challenges for a while at welterweight.
