New MMAHQ Poll : UFC 129 George St.Pierre vs Jake Shields


In our previous poll, the majority of our readers chose Mauricio Rua to retain his title against Jon Jones.  In the end, Jones won a very one sided fight at UFC 128 by knocking out “Shogun” in the 3rd round.

    Eh .. probably GSP but I think that Jake has a good chance, better than any, because the crippling point for most opponents has been takedowns and takedown defense, for Jake, the key will be to take down GSP and just suffocate him, ala GSP .. he has the best chance of any so far to do that IMO because of his height and he will come in with a weight advantage pretty sure.. reach goes to GSP (76in vs Jakes 72in) – that will also play a huge factor in takedowns, if Jakes arms can’t get around a waist, single or double leg, then he’s screwed….. GSP is the safe bet, but Jake has a pretty darn good chance of beating GSP.

    This is going to be a good fight. Both have great wrestling, and jj, but GSP seems to have better striking. I’m excited for this fight/card.

    Me and Richard already have a C-note on the line, but I’m still open for an avatar bet on GSP vs Shields.

    Of course, I got GSP to win… Any Takers?
