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

I think the 'outwrestled Dan Henderson' bit also fails to take into account just how bad a shape Dan was in after punching himself out in the first round. And its not like Henderson has the best takedown defense anyway. And Shields hasn't shown anything in other fights to suggest that he's a better wrestler than Koscheck, Hughes or Fitch - all of whom failed to control GSP on the ground. I just see this as a repeat of the second Koscheck fight as GSP perfects his Wladimir Klitschko impression.
