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

I want to see GSP outgrapple him. Shields is the real deal in grappling. His 15 fight win streak is incredible and some might argue it as good as GSPs wins.

In case you forgot:

Okami
Condit
Pyle
Daley
Lawler
Miller
Henderson
Kampmann

Shields is boring and has had scary moments but he is effective. Its impressive how effective he is because his stand is ****ing terrible. Even though he is working on it, it remains insanely bad. I give him props for having the balls to stand with guys like Hendo and Kampmann even if it is for a short while.

Shields main problem is his lack of power. Even when he is all over you, if he doesn't sub you then he can't put you away even if he is in really dominant positions.
