Quoteworthy:

"Jake Shields is the most dangerous guy that I have fought so far but in a different way than most of the guys I have fought. A lot of the guys I have fought in the past have a punchers chance. Everybody says you have to watch out for one thing, but Jake Shields has different tools than most of the guys that I have fought. He's a very good grappler, probably the best jiu-jitsu guy in the sport, plus now he's been working very hard on his Muay Thai, so he's the kind of guy who's going to try and knock me out standing up and try and submit me on the floor. I have to watch out for a lot of things."

Jake Shields, just like Josh Koscheck, Dan Hardy and Thiago Alves before him, is the most dangerous guy Georges St. Pierre has fought in his career. Oh, but this time it's different. That's because Shields has the best jiu-jitsu in the entire sport. All this according to the welterweight champion, pound-for-pound the most complimentary fighter in the world of MMA. The big storyline going into their title fight at UFC 129 on April 30 however, is the fact that "GSP" will move up to middleweight to challenge Anderson Silva if he comes away victorious. Are fans in too much of a "Rush" to dismiss the vegan challenger? Or is St. Pierre on his way to the legacy fight of the century?
