“GSP is going to make Jake Shields look like a girl. It ain’t going to go five rounds. No way; no possible way. I’ll put the house on that, that’s easy. That’s the easiest bet you could ever make. Watch, mark my words; he won’t make it out of round 3.”

-Tito Ortiz chimes in on the UFC 129 Welterweight Championship bout between Georges St. Pierre and Jake Shields in an interview with the MMA Fight Corner presented by FiveKnuckles.com.

Penick’s Analysis: Well, while I think St. Pierre is going to win that fight, I wouldn’t go quite this far with how easy it will be. Shields is going to be the most dangerous fighter St. Pierre has faced on the ground, if it goes there. Obviously there’s a large disparity in their striking skills, and that could play into the fight, but unless St. Pierre gets his opening to finish Shields off he’s not going to take any unnecessary risks, so this fight certainly could make it to the fifth round. I wouldn’t bet the house on that type of thing with St. Pierre’s fights, but that’s a fight he’s likely to win regardless.
