Fedor vs Werdum?!?!......

On topic: Shields wasn't as rocked as many think after GSP kicked him in the head. He went down, but tried going for GSP's leg and after that he immediately laid on his back, waiting for GSP to come at him.


He was 10 times more hurt by Henderson in their fight.
He face-planted!!! And Hendo couldn't put him away.


Reality is: Shields is one tough mofo, with a great chin (strong head).

BELIEVE!

^^^ What amazed me against Henderson was his recovery time. He was clean out right after it hit him, and before he hit the canvas his arms were up to protect him from the fall, and he rolled over onto his back.

Absolutely amazing recovery time.

The thing is, leg-locks aren't just for submitting. He could have leglocked GSP then taken his back, went for an ankle, got side-control... any of those things would have landed GSP in a world of hurt and the leg lock was effective against Henderson at stopping the assault.


Shields' had GSP locked up really well in the few seconds it was on the ground. I wasn't sure if Shields could submit GSP but I'm sure he could now. Plus I'm glad Shields' cardio was proven again.

Yes it stopped the swarm, but he was hardly near finishing Henderson, that's all I was saying.
