Standing or on the ground, GSP will dictate the terms. That's right -- even on the ground, I give it to St. Pierre. He's no stranger to BJJ -- if BJ Penn couldn't submit him, I doubt Jake Shields will. And we've certainly seen him take even talented grapplers down -- at will, with an expertise that's almost casual in appearance.
But it's likely that Shields will be forced to strike with him, making it that much more inevitable that St. Pierre will successfully defend for the sixth time.
As for Randy Couture vs. Lyoto Machida -- I am a die hard fan of The Natural. That said, I think Machida will take him.
We adore Nate Diaz here at Marlinspike Hall. We respect Rory MacDonald, sure... but we love the Diaz boys. That's right, keep an eye out for The Manor Tag Team.
Enjoy the fights!
