And Marquardt definitely wouldn't help him against Shields, Shields would beat Marquardt handily IMO.
Actually he has been everywhere, training with Roger Gracie and Freddie Roach. GSP has also brought in Rashad to train with him at TriStar in the past and considering that Rashad is in Toronto for the fight I doubt GSP didn't bring him up to Montreal first. GSP trains with Olympic wrestlers, Olympic sprinters. The guy trains with the best possible people in everything he does. Its insane the level the guy trains at and the people he trains with. He trains with Gymnasts, sprinters, wrestlers, Pure grapplers and boxers who have competed at the highest levels. Its insane the guy is like a mad scientist trying to find the perfect recipe to be a mma fighter.

just watched the countdown and interviews, I think GSP got Shields in the right mindset for him to win. it's obvious that during the latest interviews, GSP were trying to make Shields underestimate him, build some kind of "over confidence", which will make the job that much easier for GSP as an overconfident Shields would certainly be easier to break.

Anything can happen but I can imagine GSP putting another dominant performance and possibly a finish this time.

He might get caught but I'm not really sure Shields got what it takes to get him on his back and keep him there.

As before I see GSP either by Ko during the first rounds, or if it doesn't work, taking it to the mat for the latter rounds, looking for TKo or Sub.


The keys for Shields here is to not be overconfident, be patient and hope that GSP makes a mistake he can capitalize on. He surely has the tools to do so, but at this level, in this fight, I think it's at least 70% a mental game and I'm pretty sure GSP got this one on the mental side, it looks like he got Shields exactly where he wanted him to be.

It would be funny if Shields does what Ariel Helwani suggested and come out wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey in an attempt to grab some fans.

I'll never question GSP's desire to be the best, or his training, preparation, and focus to that end. For me, if anyone can avoid Shield's takedowns for 5 rounds, it's GSP. But likewise, I think if anyone can take GSP down and control him for 3 out of 5 rounds, it's Shields. Jake clearly isn't going to pound Georges out with his pillow-hands, and it's unlikely he's going to catch him in a submission. But I could definitely see Jake out-position and control him on the mat for a round or three.

I have to think Georges' gameplan is to avoid the mat at all costs in this. If he takes Jake down, I see him getting swept and mounted (sorry Danaher!). Shields is a very, very, very different kind of grappler than Kos or Fitch. I might be wrong, but I think he'll be the biggest, strongest WW that Georges has ever fought and definitely the best grappler (i.e. wrestling AND jj).

I wouldn't put it past the security to throw a tantrum and try to take the belt that Jake wins away at the exit....

The closer this fight gets the more I realize it's more fun to root for Shields (since I'm not really invested emotionally in this fight).

WAR SHIELDS!!!

The way I see It, If you put GSP and Shields in a cage 20 times, Shields will get him down and put on a sub once.

But It Is completely random and might happen on their very first fight.
