With UFC 129 a few days away, whats everyone's thoughts? GSP or Jake Shields? I think it's going to be a close fight. GSP is very technical and in the best shape of his life. However, shields is TOUGH. 6 years undefeated! If you've ever watched any of his fights, he dominates them. I would like to see GSP win. This is probably going to be his toughest fight in his career. And not to mention if he wins, Dana White announced there would be a Anderson Silva/GSP fight! Which would be ridiculous.

Thoughts?

Shields, i just dislike.

imo, he did not 'dominate' Hendo. he barely has any punching power even with a full mount. it was more of a "lets slap the crap outta hendo"

He is not a finisher

GSP Vs Kock-chek, i have never seen anyone do that much damage with jabs, like everyone else said.

I think shields is a blanket.

Technicality, GSP is still a beast
I believeee!

I am a canuck and I am proud to say GSP, he is the best at what he deos in his weightclass, he Not only is always in top phiscal condition but he researches, and has a methodical game plan that is just unbelieveable... always very strategic and amazing.. very very great fighter.

Shields is really good at neutralizing his opponents, but GSP is so dynamic, technical and athletic that I don't think Shields will be able to keep up. GSP is going to pick him apart and expose his game. Looking forward to the match though, moreso than his last few fights.

GSP cheats?

There was an interview with every weightclass' champ. There is talk of a "super fight" between the winner of tonight's fight and the winner of Silva's next fight in june. It may very well be Silva vs GSP.

i think he's talking about his last fight with BJ Penn. Penn accused him of rubbing himself down in vaseline so Penn couldn't get a grip on him and he would just slide off the cage. He also accused him of taking steroids. Penn went as far as writing a 20 page complaint to the state of Nevada haha.

Shields is just way too cocky. I mean yea, he's good, but he is no GSP in my mind. GSP's conditioning is insane and his strength.
