I wish someone had polled the Gracie family on this fight. That would have been interesting.

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.
I think no matter who get's the takedown, soon as they're on the mat it's advantage to Jake. Why would Shields be worried about being taken down? GSP is the one who benefits from keeping the fight standing.

Oh, I agree it's to Jake's liking to be on the mat.

But what does nobody expect? GSP taking it to the mat. So I bet he does exactly that, and early. Albeit briefly (without the intent of keeping it there or for long). Which should give him more space while standing; an unexpected thing for Jake to think about. Jake is supposed to be the guy gunning for the takedown, so GSP may decide to take that 1 thing away from him by beating him to it.

I'm not vehemently defending this theory - just surmising. The other possible scenarios that have been talked about still seem the most likely to me. I'm just playing with an idea/long-shot hunch.

I think Shields' camp is prepared for GSP to shoot. I've read a couple interview's with Gracie over the past couple daysd and he's mentioned at least once in each Shields' preparedness to be on the bottom. That is, unless they're blowin' smoke over at the scrap pack!

If thy're being truthful, I think GSP will probably shoot for the takedown and maybe get it, but I think he'll get caught up in Shields' JJ web, or get reversed (al a Fitch) and have to get back up. In that case I suspect him to be wary of shooting again.

From what Ive seen and read I think Jake might try and stand and clinch with GSP, they say his stand up has came along by leaps and bounds I guess we'll see.

lol, I'd find it very entertaining if they hook up and jake KO's GSP in the first thirty seconds, IMO this fight goes to the cards but it would still be great because its a lesser probability.

GSP 4th round TKO. I believe he's going to put on a relentless amount of pressure on Jake on the feet. Jake came in under which means his conditioning shouldn't be a problem. Interestingly enough it looks like GSP looks a bit more cut and probably has added a few more pounds of muscles. I believe GSP will try to finish Jake Shields tonight.
