Top contender Jake Shields talks with MMACanada about his upcoming fight with the versatile champ, Georges St-Pierre. Shields feels that he may be taken down, but he will be working submissions from every angle on the bottom till he pulls the upset.
“I think it’s going to be a great fight. I’m excited. I think GSP is phenomenal fighter; I have a ton of respect for him. It’s going to be an all out war but I see myself winning. I’m not going out there to give him a good fight; I’m going out there to be the UFC champ.”
“I think the wrestling is pretty much even. (But) I think I have the superiority in the submission (game) over him though.”
“I think I’m going to submit him. I know he’s not easy to submit. But I’m going to be hunting for submissions from every angle. I think he’ll take me down. I think I’ll be on my back this fight, but I can fight off my back.”
