    Great video. Most people seem to think the single-leg takedown is inferior in MMA, but Shields uses it regularly and effectively. He used it against Miller and Hendo, and even against an Olympian like Askren in this video. He was giving Ben all he could handle in this video, but Askren has a lot of potential.

    If he gets he clutches on Kampmann I don't think he'll have any trouble getting him down and sticking to him like velcro. Martin can win this fight but he really has to stay mobile, and try to frustrate Shields by making him pay every time he wades in close, then jumping out of range again.

    I want him to win because I am tired of watching fighters coming to UFC with a big hype and then failing miserably

    Why do you think Fitch would win? Just curious, they've competed against each other in submission wrestling before and Shields won decisively.

    Shields is going wreck him 1 dimensionally.

    Askren and Shields Grappling together:
    Video - Scramblers Delight on Flowrestling

    Kampmann is going to get pwned and he knows it.
    Very cool video. Lots of people call Shields' wrestling "slow", but I think Shields is very methodical and people misinterpret that. Kampmann is very good on the ground as well, but I think Shields will be too much for him.

    One thing I found a little ironic about the article, Kampmann talks about how judges will give a fighter the nod based on takedowns when they are getting lit up on the feet, when thats pretty much how he got the win against Condit.

    You might want to release that grip you have on his nuts a bit. We wouldn't want you to castrate Shields after getting KTFO on Saturday.

    Maybe, but that one dimension... Is nearly unstoppable. Just ask anyone he has fought in the past half-decade. Martin is next. Then GSP.

    His striking is indeed brizutal, to put it mildly.

    In the video clips I've seen of him striking and hitting the pads, he literally barely has any movement below the waist. Striking power comes from the legs, ass, and torque of the hips. Shields only knows how to twist his upper body to throw fairly slow arm punches.
