Re: If GSP-Shields turns out to be a ground/grappling match, what are Shields' chance
I think people are confused if it goes to the ground shields has dangerous ability.
shields is not a lay and pray fighter, if he gets Gsp down and gets in top position he will not be going for a decision victory, this is a fight sheilds has wanted for years! Sheilds dosnt simply lay in his opponents guard, he goes for position advancement, gnp, and submissions.
I think if shields is able to take gsp down repeatedly we are going to see a shields victory- very hard to take gsp down but it has been done before(I would really be interested what Jake sheilds gameplan for getting it to the ground is going to be) by fighters who couldnt take advantage of it, I think its clear that jake shields is more dangerous on the ground than any of them.
I get the feeling that this will be a ground battle, Im going with the underdog in this one - Shields victory by armbar.
If the fight remains standing a unanimous decision for GSP.
