A great move. Those were really his only two options... get magically better at striking or improve his wrestling.

terrible. he would have been better off bringing in a conditioning expert and a versatile striking animal to mimic GSP.
He is asking two wrestlers to help wrestle? bad call.

Jake is so terrible standing up...I mean...I really just don't see him being able to develop his stand up game enough to make a dent. GSP vs. Kosheck 2....accept Kosheck talked enough smack that you actually thought he had a prayer of winning. Then of course, gsp jabbed him to death.

Jake Shields is going to win.

go to vegas RIGHT NOW!!! You can retire if you win on those odds. To be frank...I don't have a dog in the fight...I would be geeked if GSP got upset by a former strikeforce fighter...not going to happen though. Just don't see it.
