Top Welterweight contender Jake Shields, who will face division Champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 129 in Toronto, discusses his opponent, as well as how he envisions the fight playing out. Shields feels that he and St. Pierre are equally talented wrestlers, but predicts it will be his superior submission abilities that earn him the victory.
Unbeaten in more than six years, Shields will challenge the reigning 170-pound champ, "GSP", in the headlining bout of the stacked UFC 129 fight card. The event is set to take place on April 30th in front of a record breaking audience in the sold-out Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and will also feature the promotional debut of Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo, as he puts his belt on the line against Mark Hominick in the co-main event.
