Agressive GSP= loss
Patient GSP= win
Jake has very little in the way of stand up IMO. He has enough to set up a take down where he rules every match, with agressive opponents. Even his GNP isn't very impressive! Jake is a point striker at best on the ground. His JJ however is top notch!
I see GSP being aggressive in this fight because he was unable to finish his last 2 fights. I see him being very eager to finish the fight. Both GSP and Shields have similiar styles where they like to wear out their opponents.
Needless to say, I really really want to see this fight. GSPs biggest challenge to date. IF GSP beats Shields, then he can talk about moving up to middleweight.
Honestly I have Shields with the upset.
