Shields is coming off of a split decision win over Tyron Woodley at UFC 156. Shields has flip-flopped divisions in his previous two, fighting in both the welterweight and middleweight divisions, two that he has a vast amount of experience in. Shields has already tasted title contention in the division as he fought Georges St-Pierre in his sophomore fight in the UFC, losing a lop-sided decision.

This win marked Maia’s third in a row as he is unbeaten in the 170-pound division with wins over Fitch, Rick Story and Dong-Hyun Kim.

      Never…you gotta go to Bellator to see the BEST ground fighter there is bar-none, Ben Askren, Period. He would beat GSP easily.

      • Sasquatch says:

        LOL.. That’s some funny sh!t GW.. the fight would never hit the ground, GSP would pick him apart on the feet. Even if it did hit the ground Georges is to physically strong for him. Bens been fighting cans.. his dominance would end if he fought a top 10.

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          No Way Sas. As good as GSP is and as much as I admire his abilities, he has ZERO answer for Askren. Ben would drag him down and pound him out!! Period.

          some dissent b/w you too clowns. ohhh. usually you two idiots are all over each others stick. lol

          btw – Askren is the most boring fighter in MMA. GSP would superman jab his head off. point fighters & dry humping wrestlers…you two morons can really pick em’.
