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.

The only thing I like about Shields is he is training with Chael.

But Not even that will help him against GSP.

I see him getting beaten by GSP, and shortly after that getting beaten by Lytle.
