Shields up: Georges St. Pierre is going to have to deal with 'new strategies' on April 30 --

http://www.mmamania.com/2011/1/4/191...-deal-with-new

I like Shields... but .. sorry.. no. Unless he pulls a Serra.. (which is always possible...).. No way he beats GSP.. just not the skill set.

If the fight goes past 1 minute.. it will be GSP by Dec. I am calling it now.

Andy Vs GSP?? What's the height difference? On the grou8nd.. I think GSP could do it.. standing???? Andy has laser sights on his wrists....

I really don't see why people think GSP should immediately take that fight with Anderson. I understand the desire for the fight...I just don't think it makes to have it pushed on him.

Anderson topped the P4P list for nearly 3 years, and even he only faced mediocre competition when he moved up to 205. And yeah, I'm sorry, I like Forrest, but IMO he had a career night against Rampage to win the belt, and is otherwise mediocre. Not to mention tailor-made for Anderson's skill set.

If Anderson got a chance to test the waters, I say give GSP the same chance...fight a tough, potentially dangerous, but lower level opponent to begin with, then step it up a few notches to a high-level gate keeper. If all goes well, then at that point he's used to the extra weight & by all means go for it.

Oh, Spiritwalker...Andy is at least 3 inches taller and walks around about 30 pounds heavier...he's a much bigger guy. And I know skill is more important, but the smaller the skill discrepancy (and in this case although I give GSP the overall edge, it's very small) the more important size becomes.

Not to mention he choked out the current Light Heavyweight Champion.

The almighty Shogun Rua who almost got knocked out by Mark Coleman

I think GSP wins this but I really think that this will be the toughest fight he has had at 170
