It seems the former Strikeforce middleweight champ, Jake Shields is planning on out-wrestling Georges St-Pierre in his upcoming title shot at UFC 129. The Gracie student has said that he has brought in wrestling stand outs Chael Sonnen and Ben Askren to help implement a ground game strategy.

Coming off a widely criticized debut in the UFC against Martin Kampmann, Shields sourced fatigue from a severe weight cut prior to the fight. Able to eek out a victory with superior grappling, Shields will look to do the same in his title fight in the champs backyard.
