Default Shields to train with Uncle Chael!!

http://www.bjpenn.com/profiles/blogs...in-with-sonnen

Jake Shields (#3 BJPenn.com WW) is attempting to pull out all the stops in preparation for his UFC welterweight title fight with Georges St. Pierre, as he revealed on "The Fight Show" that he's bringing in Ben Askren and Chael Sonnen (#2 BJPenn.com MW) to help him prepare for the biggest fight of his career.

Askren, who went to the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing, has one of the best wrestling pedigrees in MMA, and is also the reigning Bellator Welterweight Champion. MMA fans should already be very familiar with Chael Sonnen, as his brash talk and epic battle with Anderson Silva last summer, have made him one of the focal points in the MMA media. Not withstanding all that, Shields recognizes where Sonnen can assist him, as his wrestling has proven to be very effective throughout his career.

What's interesting to note is the two different styles that both men will offer in terms of training, as Askren is a free-style wrestler, while Sonnen was a standout in Greco-Roman wrestling. Shields will be carrying a 15-fight win streak into the Octagon with notable victories over Yushin Okami, Carlos Condit, Nick Thompson, Mike Pyle, Paul Daley, Robbie Lawler, Jason Miller, Dan Henderson, and Martin Kampmann

So, we can predict 23 minutes of Shields leg humping GSP, ultimately to get submitted by a triangle choke when he's close to victory? Oh, and a positive drug test at the end of the fight?

Well, historically, I think Shields throws 1 punch per round once he's got a hold of the legs. Hopefully, Chael can rid him of that habit.

I hate the fact that Chael will be associated with Jake.

Chael is the best wrestler in the UFC MW division bar none. Shields is a natural MW, this should prove very fruitful for him.

I'm pulling for Shields too Foxy - just cuz I don't likes GSP to win

I'm with you and Foxy, Vizion! I think it's good sometimes to go outside your camp for varied training. If these two can help Jake make GSP's wrestling less effective in the fight, I'm all for it!

Let's hope something good happens, and if not I am gonna rely on good ol' Spider to end his reign!!

Well, if Jake can run with the Diaz brothers (nothing against them either, love watching both of them fight) and stay out of trouble then he has nothing to worry about. No one can say Chael's not the best wrestler and take down artist in the MW's. Smart for Jake to have him in his camp.
