questions why Jake Shields
deserves a shot at the UFC welterweight title on April 30th in an interview with MMA Fight Corner
). And even though Jake Shields will be riding a fifteen-fight win streak into UFC 129
, Matt Hughes says it will be an easy fight for Georges St. Pierre
"I think that's going to be a pretty easy fight. I really do. I think GSP's going to be able to do whatever he wants. Jake's not going to be able to get on top, so I just don't see him being effective really anywhere."
"I definitely don't think he's going to be able to take him down, and if Shields is on his back I just don't see him being effective. I have to really wonder why he got a title shot in the first place. But I'll tell you why he got a title shot is, there's no one else."
