Jake Shields is smart

It’s been pretty obvious to anyone who’s brain isn’t slowly rotting from syphilis that Georges St Pierre vs Jake Shields was gonna go down at the UFC’s Skydome show in Toronto. Now it’s official, and we can all begin to speculate on how bad of an ass whupping GSP is going to unleash on Shields.

I expect a cathartic strand up drubbing on a higher level than what happened to Jon Fitch in 2008, not just to shut the haters up but because Georges targets weakness and Jake’s standup looks like it came from a cardio kickboxing class. But how does Jake think it’s going to go? Here’s what he told the guys at BJPenn.com:

“I definitely feel that I’ll find a way to get him down and I think he’s going to try to get me down too. He’s a great wrestler and Jiu-Jitsu fighter as well so I think this fight will definitely hit the ground.”

Brain syph. It’s the only explanation. Remember when it’s confirmed that you heard it here first.

    your man crush for gsp has blinded you, and corrupted your ability to be an objective journalist. you should be ashamed.

    gsp doesnt have the balls to try to put jake out on the feet, and is a vastly inferior grappler. jake wins this fight in convincing fashion, and adds yet another championship belt to his collection.

    i am %100 sure, or i will never post again.

    “I expect a cathartic stand up drubbing on a higher level than what happened to Jon Fitch in 2008″

    I’ve been expecting a drubbing on the level of the Fitch fight for the past three fights. Safe bet is on another technical masterpiece (read: workmanlike decision with a foregone conclusion by 3 minutes into round 1)

  • Mixed Martial Adam

    Um… I can’t see Shield’s doing much to get Georges down if he’s getting punched in the face the whole time from the outside. Add the 40,000(+) screaming Canadians and it should be a pretty rough night for Shields overall.

  • agentsmith

    Yeah, it should be about 40000 too. The place can hold over 60K, but Dana recently said they’re going to set it up for about 40K.

  • thingvolds

    lol @ a bunch of screaming canadians intimidating anyone, let alone a true american alpha male

  • agentsmith

    LOL @ “true american alpha male”

    What, like GSP is fighting Hulk Hogan now?

  • CAP

    GSP should make shields look like a piñata on his feet. But I would be curious to see how it goes on the ground. I thought Jake Shields was a piece of crap but somehow he beat Hendo. No way Jake can finish this fight.

  • Blackula Jonez

    Sheilds is a one dimensional super grappler tailor made for a stand up drubbing.

    Jake needs to dive for single legs like his life depended on it and swing for the fences is he is to stand any conceivable chance. And even that is fleeting.

  • glassjawsh

    id be willing to bet that while shields loses convincingly, he breaks GSP’s consecutive rounds won streak

  • G Funk

    Jake Shields swinging for the fences? You must be sick or have a hangover Black.

  • thingvolds

    “tailor made for a stand up drubbing”

    lol. you guys keep saying that, and it never happens.

    everyone said kampman would knock him out. didnt happen

    everyone said hendo would stuff all jakes td attempts and knock him out, didnt happen

    everyone said lawler could knock him out. didnt happen

    everyone said daley would knock him out. didnt happen

    jake shields

    shooto belt holder
    rotr belt holder
    elite xc belt holder
    strikeforce belt holder
    soon to be ufc belt holder

    get used to it

  • agentsmith

    Actually he lost the Shooto belt to Akira Kikuchi. Not like it matters either way though.

  • FiveBoltMain

    GSP is going to whoop Shields ass and then take the rest of the year off to bulk up and fight Silva (if he gets past Vitor & Okami) on NYE.

  • Mixed Martial Adam

    ^^ I know you’re a troll, but I’ll feed you anyway

    Kampman was an idiot and probably could have knocked him out, yet chose to fight on the ground despite having Jake gassed and powerless on the feet.

    Hendo pretty much did knock out Jake in the first (barely survived that one) and then Hendo’s 40 year old body wore out and he got laid on for 20 minutes.

    Lawler and Daley got thoroughly dominated on the ground, but neither has the defensive wrestling that GSP will bring to the table nor the jits skills.

    No one is saying that GSP will KO Shield’s for sure, but looking at how the two match up it’s all but guaranteed that GSP will give him a drubbing (i.e. multiple, multiple strikes to his head).

    Must be nice to have so much time to troll…

  • thingvolds
  • glassjawsh

    it’s odd how parallel shields getting “knocked out” by hendo and tyson griffin getting knocked out by takanori gomi are.

    blah blah blah. shoulda, coulda, woulda
    thanks for playing, though

  • Toastmold

    Typo in the post, “I expect a cathartic strand up drubbing on….”

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I agree with G-Funk he’s not even half the man needed to stick by his word – this is just more of his trolling.

    He couldn’t sub Martin Fucking Kampmann, but he’ll beat Rush? He gasses constantly and he’ll be going up against a 5-round machine.

    The crazy thing is, I’d hope GSP will lose if only so he’d become more aggressive in his submission game.

  • thingvolds

    DJThunderElbows –
    “He couldn’t sub Martin Fucking Kampmann, but he’ll beat Rush?”

    ——————————————————————————————–

    Martin Fucking Kampmann has never once been submitted in his 7 year professional career.

    what were you trying to imply there? that martin fucking kampmann is some kind of joke on the ground, and easy to submit?

    thats what it seems like you were trying to imply.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    And that he’ll gas and that you won’t stick to your word. Finish your rebuttal.

  • Phunk

    LOL EliteXC belt holder? Strikeforce belt holder? Like being the smartest kid on the short bus.

    Yes, the out of business promotion and the regional promotion on steroids offered a real juggernaut for Shields to go through on his way to the MOST important and highly regarded belts of our time.

    GSP won the the UCC WW belt in his second fight. Why don’t be bring that useless crap into the convo?

    Also, GSPs record is a who’s who of MMA contrasted with Shields who’s that? record.

  • thingvolds

    LOL GSP tapped to strikes.

    HE FUCKING TAPPED OUT TO STRIKES!

    WHEN HIS BELT WAS ON THE LINE!!

    TO A 5 FT TALL JIU JITSU GUY!!

    HE ASKED BIG JOHN TO STOP A 5 FT TALL JIU JITSU FROM PUNCHING HIM!!

    MAIN EVENT, LIVE PPV, BELT ON THE LINE, HE TAPPED TO FUCKING STRIKES?

    imagine jake shields tapping to strikes, LOL

    that would never happen

    what kind of champion taps out to strikes, giving his belt away?

  • iamphoenix

    I fucking hate trolls.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    And you can tell he’s a troll because when someone rebukes his shit he runs away and starts yelling about something else. He’s basically a less manly version of Sara Palin.

  • Reverend Clint

    are we talking thing or overeem/fedor/ballhair haducunt?

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Naw, the PRIDE fanbois like him and Yeah Right aren’t crazy tantrum throwers like thing. Even if they believe something others blast em for, they’ll discuss it.

    Hell, even the Jackal actually named Trol wasn’t this much of a troll.

  • thingvolds

    im not running away from anything. some things are just so stupid (like your and phucks posts), i wont dignify them with a response

  • frickshun

    Things……I think I liked it better when you sounded crazay. Cuz unless you ARE Jake Shields, this line of reasoning is full on ruh-tard.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    You responded to the only point you could come up with a weak counter for, then ignored the rest cause you’re full of shit, which was the last point you ignored. And Jake gassing against GSP is stupid? Ha ha, you’re great – keep it up kid.

    Perhaps if I was darker and disrespected your cumcave you’d find it worth dignifying …

  • thingvolds

    also shields is much better looking than gsp, and didnt use steroids to achieve his physique. just sayin

  • iamphoenix

    volds is a troll along with reem/fedor.haudoken. i can’t stand their bullshit. every fucking thing they write is about overeem and strikeforce is fucking pathetic.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    also shields is much better looking than gsp

    First close to real thing you’ve ever said. Shields is a cutie, but his gnarled chompers, stuttering and vegan (Scott Pilgrim) attitude are a turn-off. GSP slides ‘em off chairs with authority, but they’re defintiely close.

    and didnt use steroids to achieve his physique.

    Yeah, his upper back just eats a LOT of vegetable tempura and cookies.
