I've really disappointed at how ignorant the people on MMAF have been about GSP vs. Shields. That was an amazing fight, Shields and GSP both put on amazing performances and I was on the edge of my seat.
What fight was you watching, what exactly did Shields do to amaze you with his performance aside from poke GSP in the eye.
Now don't get me wrong, I can see why GSP was happy to stand there all night long outpointing Shields as he came in with the same 3 strike combo over and over again, can't quite recall what the exact sequence was think it started with a inside leg kick (not sure on that) but it followed with a jab then round kick to the body.
Best thing about it was GSP had it owned with a counter every time to just keep picking away for his points, yet still he never learned and continued to keep trying his pathetic combo. Only time Jake mixed it up was when he poked GSP in the eye, yea that worked out nice GSP never saw that sh1t coming nor had a plan to counter that, Jake should of come out with more of that, was after all the only thing that worked out for him all night, he should of done more of that and try to blind GSP maybe mix it up with a few kicks to the balls see to see how that worked out, better still do the same again only to the other eye, maybe if he was successful in blinding GSP in both eyes then after his combo might of stared to work.
Am sorry but after the second round it was clear that he needed to make big adjustments to his approach else he was just going to get pointed out to a decision, and what do you know he just carried on with the same approach for 5 fcuking rounds and just as every MMA fan watching the fight knew was going to happen after just the first 2 rounds, GSP continued to remain patient countering Jakes's pathetic little combo approach, which Jake was probably using to try and set up a take down, but it was so far off ever been close to successful you would never of fcuking guessed, so no fault here on the account of GSP for just carrying on to win the decision Jake was giving him on a plate.
I bet GSP was thinking to himself, thank you Jake for been so fcuking predictable, I can do this sh1t all night long if you want, YESS!!! money in the bag for me here we go again
Seriously that fight lacked any excitement, if was just a predictable run of repetitive events from start to finish, it was just GSP having the answer to a very simple set of problems (or more accurately a SINGLE simple problem) Jake had set out for him, can't really fault GSP for just continuing doing what he was doing, hell if your opponent is going to keep coming for the same approach and you have a counter for it that is steering you right into an easy decision win then why change it, hell it was Shields who was falling more and more behind and needed to come up with something to at least try to change the way the fight was going.
To put it bluntly Shields sucked in that fight, he lacked heart, the will to win, the ability to adapt, his strategy was hopeless and there was no plan B, he laked the will to throw down and give it his all when the chips where down even when his title hopes where drifting further and further away, They should make a new Epic Fail title just for Jake Shields and make him the current raining Epic Fail champion of the UFC based on that performance, he truly does deserve such a symbol of recognition for the work rate and performance he gave that night.
So again seriously what fight was you watching, did I miss out on some amazing edge of your seat battle between two other guys coincidently named GSP and Jake Shields which you enjoyed so much, while I was to busy roped into watch the pile of sh1t that was been ditched out on the UFC 129 card.
Jake if you happen by any chance to read this, Go back to SF and get your ass subbed by Jacare you fcuking looser.
