I'll be really surprised if GSP doesn't win this because he's so well rounded he can just take all the fights they give him to where the opponent is weakest lately.

This. There just isn't any WW in the world that I believe could beat GSP at the moment. The dudes a freak. Physically and mentally. Hes always improving. If Shields wins this I'll murder a new born puppy and put the head on the pillow of its owner.

Very close decision, perhaps split. Many will be unhappy with the decision either way. I'll go with Mr. Shields.
I predict a very similar fight, but I think GSP will pull it out in the end.

Shields is no doubt GSP's toughest test at WW by some margin. He ain't no josh koscheck or Jon Fitch, his over all grappling ability is on another level compared to those guys.

I look forward to a very competitive fight and I hope Jake Shields finally earns the respect of the fans, far too many people don't give enough credit where credit is due.

Chucks prediction

Chuck Liddell knows a thing or two about defending a championship. The "Iceman" captured the UFC light-heavyweight title and held it for two years before relinquishing the crown. Georges St. Pierre has held a UFC belt even longer. He won the undisputed welterweight title in April 2008, so a successful title defense over Jake Shields at this weekend's UFC 129 will make it three years and counting at the top.

Liddell, though, has his doubts about St. Pierre getting there. In a Monday interview on The MMA Hour, Liddell said he thinks the challenger is likely to walk away with the belt.

"I'm siding with Jake," Liddell said. "Jake's going to have to take him down. I'm expecting him to be in great shape for the fight. He'll be in great shape for GSP. But yeah, I expect him to take him down and finish him."

Part of Liddell's opinion admittedly stems from his long history with Shields, who got his start in the sport by training with Liddell in San Luis Obispo, California.

The 32-year-old Shields has been one of the top multi-division fighters in the world for several years, but Liddell knew him from his early days, when Shields (26-4-1) was known for his hardcore work ethic. Liddell says he couldn't predict Shields' future excellence, but it was clear from his drive that he was determined to make an impact in the sport.

"He had athletic ability, I knew he was very tough and he always wanted to work," Liddell said. "He was always in the gym working on new things, working with people. We'd always say, 'Relax, you have a fight in a couple days. Just relax.'"

Liddell, who is retired as a fighter and currently serves as the vice president of business development for the UFC, said he's at peace with his recent decision to call it quits inside the cage as he works on projects to promote the sport and his company.

"It's one of those things, I'm never gonna get over not fighting, I don't think, but i'm content with my decision to retire," he said.

Next up on Liddell's personal agenda is getting married. He'll tie the knot with his longtime girlfriend Heidi Northcott this summer. And while he still works out, he doesn't incorporate MMA training into his routine as often as he'd like. But he still makes time to watch fights as a fan.

When asked how he thought a prime Iceman would fare against current light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones, Liddell laughed at the hypothetical.

"I don't like to answer questions like that because I'm not going to fight him," he said. "I'm retired, it's not going to happen. But you know what? If you asked me when I was fighting in my prime, I would have said I'd win. That's just the way I was. I thought i could beat anyone in the world."

Well on the tactical standpoint

GSP is probably "preparing" for Shields for a long time, let's say he saw him coming, sitting on his throne. it's probably safe to assume that he had an underlaying workout during some time, aimed towards a fight like this (methodical and technical)

I feel GSP wants to make a statement and prove that he can finish fight (for some reason)

it's plain impossible to try and guess what GSP's gameplan gonna be. He might as well just go, roll and submit the guy (who thought he would mount fitch back in the days?)

or, he's planning on a stand up gameplan

I think NO ONE knows. So Shields probably worked a little bit of everything, while GSP most likely worked a LOT on sub defense and general grappling defense, and who knows what "a lot" means to a dude like this? For all that we know, he might as well pretty much mastered the whole thing by now and no one would have any idea of it until april 30th.

I'm pretty sure GSP in his interviews was working on building Shields confidence (saying he's somewhat "afraid" or he "doesn't take it lightly" etc...) in order to break it easily in the octagon.

I don't exactly remember which fight, GSP explained he did a specific kind of attack in order to weaked his opponent ability to grapple, we might see something like this again in the early rounds, but he'll probably hunt for the chin, I have the feeling he wants a KO here.

if he doesn't get the KO, he'll most likely frustrate Shields during the first 2 or 3 rounds, until he's softened enough.

then I see GSP taking this to the floor in the latter rounds so he can rashaad a decision

So I got GSP by KO/TKO in the early rounds
if he doesn't get it, he'll probably roll with a weakened/broken Shields up to the 5th bell and end up like getting a couple 10/8 rounds, the others being 10/9

I'm excited to see the fight because it'll all come down to "what if Shields surprises GSP?"

I don't rule Shields out because he's also fairly smart and probably sees a lot of things coming too.


but all in all I think GSP knows what to do and how to get the win here, while Shields is hoping he has a good gameplan and a good enough camp to get the work done.

I first thought it would go like GSP vs Jon Fitch, where GSP just worked Jon on the feet and on the ground, even though GSP supposedly shouldnt have dominated him on the ground like that. I think Jake is GSP's toughest opponent to date, that said I think now its going to go in the way of GSP vs Koscheck 2. Where GSP and Koscheck's wrestling was pretty much neutralized against each other, but GSP tooled Josh on the feet, earning the decision victory. This could be the same thing.
