UFC 129: Jake Shields Confident He'll Take the Belt From GSP

Two dominant welterweights meet in Toronto for the biggest UFC event in history - Will Georges St. Pierre continue his dominance over the welterweight division, or will Jake Shields begin his reign in Toronto? We'll find out April 30th:
"To become the UFC welterweight champion would mean everything to me. This is what I've spent my last 11 years pursuing with all my energy. This is something I plan on doing April 30th."

"I've been in these other shows and heard everyone say GSP is the greatest. When I was over in EliteXC beating everyone else, when I was in Strikeforce beating everyone else, at Rumble on the Rock and everyone kept on talking about GSP, I kept on winning and winning and beating good competition. I've been looking at this guy and wanting to fight him for years."

"I'm just thinking about going out there and beating him. They can boo me or cheer me, but I'm going out there to beat GSP."
