UFC 129: Jake Shields Is Prepared To Fight Off His Back Against GSP


#1 contender Jake Shields is looking for the submission win on April 30th in Toronto, Ontario at UFC 129. Shields talks to MMACanada.net and says he's prepared to fight off of his back if taken down by the wrestling skills of Georges St. Pierre.
"I think it's going to be a great fight. I'm excited. I think GSP is phenomenal fighter; I have a ton of respect for him. It's going to be an all out war but I see myself winning. I'm not going out there to give him a good fight; I'm going out there to be the UFC champ."

"I think the wrestling is pretty much even. (But) I think I have the superiority in the submission (game) over him though."

"I think I'm going to submit him. I know he's not easy to submit. But I'm going to be hunting for submissions from every angle. I think he'll take me down. I think I'll be on my back this fight, but I can fight off my back."
