B.J. Penn Gives a Brief Analysis on GSP-Shields Fight
B.J. Penn takes a quick break and talks about the upcoming UFC 129 fight.
B.J. Penn has battled Georges St-Pierre twice in his MMA career. However, GSP held on tight with his belt. But this does not mean that Penn bows to GSP’s glory, he thinks Jake Shields is the man to end GSP’s dreams.
“I think if there’s anybody out there that’s going give GSP a good fight, I think Jake Shields might be the man,“ Penn told the media on Tuesday.
“When you look at him and you don’t think much. When you see him fight and you don’t think much, but he goes out there and wins,” added the Hawaiian fighter.
“He beat Dan Henderson. I know it’s a different style and styles make fights, but I think Dan Henderson would do really well with GSP if they were in the ring together,” added Penn. “I honestly think it’s a toss-up.”
Penn are familiar with both fighters.
“You’ve got GSP with the wrestling and the stand up and Shields with the great wrestling and jiu-jitsu, so it’s going to be a good fight,” said the former UFC champion.
“I think I’ve heard Shields is taking this fight serious. He’s bringing down Chael Sonnen and some other people, so it looks like he’s coming to win this thing . We’ll see what happens. A fight is a fight.”
UFC 129: St-Pierre vs. Shields will take place on April 30 in GSP’s home turf, Canada. It will feature an action-packed fights between GSP and Shields on the main card, Jose Aldo and Mark Hominick as co-headliners. Also joining the fight card are Randy Couture and Lyoto Machida.View Article Source »
