Shields made GSP miss SO many shots, he made Georges scared to throw kicks, he landed hard on him quite a few times and is the only guy since before I graduated high school to steal a round from him. You guys don't understand that a fighter looks best when fighting somebody sub-par. These two nearly canceled each other out in skill, GSP afraid to go to the ground and Shields able to avoid damage on the feet but unable to mount a great offense.
Are you kidding, thats statement is laughable, GSP hardly went for any shots except on a couple of occasions right near the end of a few of the closer round, you know just to secure the round right at the end just to make certain it was his round, or at least a little clearer to these moron judges one of which scored the previous fight 50-43 Aldo like what the fcuk did the judge not see the fight, did he fall asleep miss the entire fight then wake up from the bell at the end of the fight then take a look at Hominick's face and think to himself "dam I just missed the fight but I can't let anyone find out so I will have to make up a score, then just saw Hominick's face and thought this must of been 50-43 to Aldo"
Sorry got side tracked, its just that scoring that fight 50-43 Aldo was an epic fail of judging as bad as I have ever seen, I think it must of been by 50/50 chance of pure luck that he got the winner correct.
Anyway as far as the GSP missing his shots theory goes, it was never GSP's intention to let this fight go to the ground, in fact the thing he did best all night was to prevent the fight ever going to the ground, at least for a respectable amount of time and certainly never been on the bottom not ever.
As for the leg kicks and you thinking "GSP was to scared to throw leg kicks", I'm sure fear had zero influence on his game plan decision to avoid using leg kicks, I sure GSP was terrified of fcuk all all night long as he keep a very cool head and continued to follow a very effective game plan which he executed quite superbly to be fair, was a boring plan but he stuck to it like a true pro, certainly never acted like some scared amateur mug unable to think and making rash plays, so why the fcuk would GSP need to go against his plan that was working just fine and start throwing leg kicks that could give Shields a possible opening to get his way and win a TD, tell me why the fcuk would he do that, what would be the sense when what he was doing was working so well, what would be the intensive, what you expect him to do "durr Im GSP, I have a game plan here that is working just fine, why don't I risk fcuking it up and start throwing some leg kicks then maybe Jake will get a chance to take me down"
And the judges, well one judge called it right 50-45 GSP, the other hur well at least the got the winner right, even GSP looked over when he heard those scores and thought what the fcuk.
