Default Re: If GSP-Shields turns out to be a ground/grappling match, what are Shields' chance

Even if it does go to the ground and Jake gets the dominant position and keeps it, there's nothing in his recent fights to suggest he wont play it safe and keep position rather than go for the sub and risk losing position. It's possible he could do this for 3 rounds, but unlikely. GSP has become a master at adapting to opponents, and he respects Shields ground ability. He'll probably keep this standing, maybe mix it up with a takedown or two. If either man gets the TD and dominant position, their tactics will most likely be the same. GSP's ability on the feet will be the difference in this fight
