Shields will not get raped he is going to work GSP 10 times harder than he's been worked in his last two fights and GSP may not react well to the pressure. If that happens, he's in big trouble, if it doesn't happen, he will still have to be very careful.

I don't know how you can view this fight as one sided either way, if anything Shields actually has more positives going into the fight. He's bigger, longer win streak, has fought above 170, stylistically poses problems and doesn't carry the pressure of defending the belt.

If GSP was the dangerous striker he's made out to be I'd tip it in his favor, but he's good, NOT dangerous. A clean KO in this fight is very unlikely, so I have to favor the better grappler which is Shields. And don't say this fight won't hit the ground.

The thing is, GSP is just so much better in every single aspect of Mixed Martial Arts that it can only be a one-sided beatdown.

I doupt Shields get's more then 1 Takedown. His Wrestling shouldn't even been mentioned with the one from GSP.

The only thing where Shields has a very small edge MAYBE.. cause even this is a huge ?? could be his BJJ. But GSP's sub defense is among the best.

Shields BJJ is way to overrated for this fight. He didn'T even atempt to sub Hendo who was just laying there.

I don't see how anybody can know this. When has GSP exhibited any kind of sub defence? Nobody has managed to get him into any position to test his defence. None of us have any idea how good or bad it is. If Shields gets GSP down, then we'll see GSP's sub defence in action.

Dont get me wrong. In all likelihood GSP has got excellent sub defence. But until we actually see it, in a fight, and not on primetime, we simply don't know.

If you think this fight can only possibly be a one sided beatdown, you are very narrow-minded and don't know a lot. Didn't attempt to submit Hendo? That is 100% bullshit, why are you trying to debate with me?

I hope GSP's submission defense is as good as you claim it is, because if this fight hits the ground he will need it big time just to win on points, let alone perform a 'one-sided beatdown'.

The thing is that each time GPS is supposed to be challenged, he completely shuts down the other fighter and it becomes a one sided fight for GSP, where he can do anything he wants to them. Having Shields in there brings some questions, but he is a one dimensional fighter and is no where to the level of GSP in other aspects of MMA. I think that Shields has the potential to win a round and break GSP's 30 round unbeaten streak, which is rather impressive, but can he actually make it a competitive fight? who knows...

GSP will actually take down Shields very early on, probably more than once. That will give GSP total control, as Shields will become more worried about getting taken down than taking GSP down. Standup clinic from GSP ensues.

~ Just having fun trying to guess GSPs gameplan. I'm quite excited for this fight & fully respect both fighters. GSP is my fave, but I won't be disappointed if Shields wins either. WAR ONTARIO!

OH, and for streams or whatever, 4chan's sports board always delivers. 4chan.org/sp/
