I'm going to have to re-watch it now with some of y'all calling "eye poke". He looked taller, but I don't think he looked bigger as for muscles. I thought GSP looked thicker/heavier than he normally does.

Granted.. I have not seen any KOs from this with the exception of Andy and Lyoto..

Must people just call it a "push kick" lately... but you can do serious damage with that kick...

a rear leg front kick is a very basic (first year in karate) move.. and a jumping front kick is normally turned into a round house...
Exactly.
I start my journey in Martial Arts with 5 years of Karate,
and my brother still does Karate (running like 8 years) we've always shouted front kick to the television.

If you rewatch the fight, you can see the ref. tell shields to make sure his hand is closed when reaching out. He tells him this between rounds while sitting on the stool.
