GSP is mentally strong and to say otherwise, is just foolish. He first showed how mentally strong he is in the first BJ Penn fight and showed again that with nearly zero visibility in one eye, was still able to stick in there and grind it out. Is it GSPs fault that Shields didn't attack more aggressively? Especially in the 4th and 5th when he should have known he was losing this fight, and not to mention GSP constantly blinking and wiping at his eye.

But nope, GSP is the man at fault, he is mentally weak and showed another poor performance. Shields deserves all the credit in the world for coasting to a loss against a one eyed fighter. Did he even attempt a takedown in the 4th or 5th? can't remember...

Shields stand up was really much better than anyone expected, he landed some nice shots.

at some point I'm sure GSP really doubted because of his eye and the fact that he realized that he was not going to
1. KO Shields
2. do anything on the ground (he was really struggling when he took Shields down and got up immediately)

he fought through the 3 remaining rounds, still clearly dominating 2 out of these 3 with one good eye and the other one apparently very seriously hurt.

I mean when you're one of the greatest and you realize you have a potentially career stopping injury (he was panicking, you could tell seeing his eyes, he was close to give up and went back only on faith, his corner words were perfect too), you still have 3 rounds to go with an opponent who might as well get your injury even worse.

how many fighters would have given up in this situation, Kos looked like a child back in 124 and couldn't do anything, GSP won the fight and everybody could then see how serious Shields was as a contender.


now I want to see Shields against serious opponents like Kos, BJ, Fitch, Sanchez etc... and I really would like a GSP/Shields 2 (more than the fabled GSP/Silva that might just not gonna happen, GSP knows he can't win against Silva, not right now, he's getting there but Silva might be retired when/if he ever gets the skills to beat him)

Shields could have won this but I think GSP, even with the injury going on, showed the biggest heart of the two.

The fight in itself wasn't exciting "per se" due to the injury I believe, but GSP showed the true heart of a true champion, he clearly won, it wasn't some arguable decision.

And Shields was undoubtedly the very best contender in a long time. props to both fighters on this one.

GSP needs killer instinct. He could've finished that fight in round 2.

GSP could have finished him when he dropped with the high kick, but he's too afraid of a loss. If you cold drop someone to the matt and you won't go down with them to finish because you're too afraid of getting subbed, you're scared.

Shields wasn't nearly as rocked as it looked from that, and the last guy to drop him and rush for a finish nearly got submitted via leg lock. Smart move by GSP IMO.

I think he was hesitant, but not scared. Hesitant because had he followed him down, he may not have been able to see Shields full positioning due to the eye poke. His sub defense would have suffered IMO. He did what he had to do and stuck with his game plan.

I still wasn't too thrilled with the fight. I wanted to see more aggression from GSP while he still had good vision. I don't blame him though for playing it safe in the latter rounds.

I would like GSP to finish but I understand if he couldnt finish Jake Shields. Shields has only been TKO'd once ever and that was when he first started and got his first loss. Since then everyone tried to knock him out on the feet because of his weaker stand up game but they couldnt. The man has a steel chin, and excellent heart.

You're not really referring to the Henderson fight are you? Come on Khov, that leg lock wasn't anywhere near close.
