ILL TAKE SHIELDS! nothing more than rooting for the local fighter who is going to be in hostile territory. I think Shields makes the great GSP tap.

this aura of invincibility people put on gsp is making them see this fight in a wrong light
this is not a missmatch they're the best in the division i pick gsp by a close decision

It remains to be seen whether Pierre can keep Shields down.
I'd also like to know how long Shields can keep GSP down. Because if GSP can't keep Shields down or vice versa, GSP will put on a stand up clinic.

Henderson TDD straight up sucks. The only way this fight goes to the ground is if GSP wants it there. Jake does have some sneaky methods of luring opponents to the ground but GSP isn't that stupid as to fall for it.
If Jakes wants to get this to the ground he is going to have to really, really fight for it. So hard he might end up gassing trying to do it.
Jason Miller had his moments on the ground with Shields and another 10 seconds would have choked him out, I'm sure if GSP wanted he could control Jake on the ground. He has some of the best top control in the division and he's very strong.
Everything Shields brings into this fight, BJ Penn brought to his fights with GSP too. Except BJ was a better wrestler in an MMA context, had much better striking and, IMO was much better off his back.
Shields has good wrestling, but he doesn't have stand-up that demands respect, and that will make it even harder to get someone like GSP down.
