I was really annoyed during the fight, so much so I was jumping up and down screaming and cursing for him to shoot.

But in hindsight...Shields said in almost every pre-fight UFC hype video, "I want to stand with GSP." "I want to be able to beat GSP on the feet." And I have to give him credit for sticking to his guns and trying to do exactly what he said he wanted to do.

I think it was the dumbest f*cking strategy in the history of strategies, but I commend him for it. The "come on baby!" in round #4 was classic, my second favorite moment on that card (the Stockton mentality must be contagious).

Ya taunting someone after you strike them in the eye with open fingers must make Stockton proud.

I still would like to know what the hell Jake was thinking throwing an open handed hook at the eyes. I'd like to think it was a tragic accident but their is no reason to throw that strike. It wasn't a clinch attempt or anything of the sort.

He changed his gameplan in the most important fight of his life sounds like Stockton is rubbing off on him.

The thing about his guard is he leaves his hands wide open, almost completely stiff. It actually looks quite rediculous (and this is coming from an admitted Shields fan).

I know I've thrown a punch and my hands haven't reacted quickly enough to close before my fist gets there and its more of a lazy finger slap. Its mostly due to muscle fatigue in the forearm. Now imagine if one kept their hands completely open.

Look at it this way. Is it A) Shields is an abysmal stand up fighter who was fatigued and threw a wild stiff punch but didn't close his fist properly, or B) This wildly innaccurate and abysmal stand up fighter managed to land with one finger along as tiny a target as GSP's eye. A is infinitely more plausible than B.

Well he didn't really have a choice, he went for takedowns and GSP shrugged them off like there was a small child trying to grab him. He'd have gassed himself out if he tried that the whole fight.

Granted he didn't try much but with absolutely no sign of success with the attempts he did make I can see why he gave up and went for the eye poke instead

I guess I can see how it can happen but he should have been penalized for that. There is no place in MMA for strikes like that. What is to stop more fighters from open hand paws to the eye. If you can't beat em blind em I guess.

Made a thread about this right after the fight. Pathetic how sad this judging is when they can't even get a simple fight to score right. No ground work, just striking and octagon control/aggression. GSP won every round easily.

was a 50-45 fight easily in my eyes.

what was worse tho and the card I would like to see was the one that gave Aldo the win 50-43, was a 49-46 win imo.
