So the way to beat GSP is... Poke him in the eye that is his weakness!!!! Must be like Ken shaving Shamrocks burns or Don Frye's mustache!!!!

People underestimate just how much the fundamentals can do. Shields is not an explosive striker, but he is fundamentally sound and sticks to the basics. Its not that he does them bad he just has no flash. The basics in any stand up sport can take you aways if your stick to them and use them well.
When I took boxing for the first 6 months of sparring you used 3 punches. Left jab, right hook, right uppercut. Only after you had mastered those 3 would you slowly start incorporating other punches that you had only practiced on the pads or bag.
