I don't think GSP is at a disadvantage anywhere in the fight. At all.

Only way I see Shields getting a miracle sub is some wild scramble.

That's cool. and when GSP wins i'll be like "omg that was such a huge upset".

What makes it an upset is the fact very few people see it happening, which is reflected in the betting odds. You can call it whatever you want, but if Shields wins this is an upset, you cannot debate that.

Shields is by far the biggest challenge for GSP right now but he is definitely the underdog because that is dictated by perception.

Shields for sure. Shields actually has a shot at winning. The one chink I've seen in GSP's game is his BJJ. He makes quite a few amateurish mistakes at times or he just doesn't commit to things (He would've finished Hardy twice if he had committed or not made a mistake.) If anyone can exploit that it's Jake.


Randy, on the other hand, is just ****ed.

Randy by far.

The only way i see Shields winning is to get a leglock like palhares did against Branch. cause i really don't see him getting GSP down.

matt bloody hughes subbed gsp lol, shields is light years ahead of everyone in ww and some at mw at grappling, i find it funny most of you think jake has crap grappling when he is on a 15 fight win streak, outgrappled dan henderson and yushin okami who are way bigger and better grapplers then gsp. i say shields because i think he wins. and i saw a video of shields outgrappling fitch too for good measure.

First of all Matt Hughes is a very decorated grappler. Second, that submission was in 2004 = 7 years ago.
Noone thinks Jake Shields has crap grappling, I think you would have trouble finding anyone who isn't a troll that would say such a thing. Also I wouldn't say Henderson is a better grappler than GSP, better wrestler maybe (credentials), grappler no + GSP has better MMA wrestling.
Shields could pull off some odd miracle sub ofcourse. But I don't see that happening at all.

That being said, Shields chance is under 5%
